With himself singing and sampling along with Kári Víðisson (guitar) and Guðjón Haukur Guðjónsson (drummer). Bakaðar Baunir was briefly popular in the Icelandic underground party, mostly playing punk combined with techno. But Viggi's relationship with the other bandmembers was shaky and difficult, so he was fired and accused of being a "control-freak" and a "twat". Frustrated and depressed he published on his website (http://www.iamviggi.is/ (no longer active)) that he was going solo.
But despite of his statement he disappeared for three years. Finally when he came back on the surface in 2007 he released his first single, ‘Burn Yourself’ and shortly following the hit ‘Viggi Skapar Vandræði’. Vignir Snæbjörnsson stated in an interview that his good friend, Rúnar Hallgerðarson, rescued Viggi from the darkness he had created for himself. And as quoted: ,,Rúnar is my salvation, for his support and financial status”.
Viggi tried to bring back his former band, Baked Beans, with Rúnar as a drummer. But it didn’t work out for both of them so at the present Vignir is still solo and Rúnar is Viggi’s manager and roadie. Currently there is an underground filmgroup named ‘Leirvelta’ doing a documentary about Vignir Snæbjörnsson, his work in music and how it is heavily influenced by his personal life. The film will be released in 2010 along with Vignir’s first solo album.
