1) Copenhagen, Denmark (1998 – 2008) Lack was Thomas Burø, Jakob Nielsen, Kasper Andersen, and Jacob Johansen from Copenhagen, Denmark. We all know the feeling of getting a kick in the gut, a slap on the side of your head, being knocked out of your everyday-doze by total surprise. It’s a weird and nauseating experience, and only afterwards you realize how important it is. Lack was that kind of experience. Whether on record or in a frantic live setting, they managed to suck the air out of the listener. The sound was sincere, earnest, and fun but never funny.
