The band's 1980 tour is documented by the live album Á hljómleikum and imports jazz influences into the band's music. After some records for a new album in 1983 and 1984 the band split. One reason was that the band's success did not progress to countries other than Iceland. Egill Ólafsson started working as a writer and was a member in the band Stuðmenn in which other Þursaflokkurinn musicians were also playing. Sometimes the band met again for, for example for the memorial for Karl Sighvattson, who died in 1991.

Second album of this unknown and yet very strong band from Iceland from late '70's, �ursabit issued in 1979, is quite diffrent then their first opus. This time the folky passages are only sporadicaly and the band optaining for a more jazzier arrangements, very strong again, the perfect combination. A convincing album to my ears, as the first one, maybe I'm little more attached on the first one, but �ursabit is almost as great. Not a weak moment here, but in same time no highlights on this record. The 1980 live album � hljomleikum (1. 5/15P. saw the band explore a more sincere (and less humorous) jazz within the scope of longer tracks. A fine album, but a bit separated into two parts: renditions of shorter songs from the studio albums and the three previously unreleased longtracks.
