In august 2004 the foundations of TBFKAGNK are laid when Wouter (drums), Roald (bass) and Philip (Trumpet) remain after a break-up in a former schoolband. Guitarist Timber joins this threesome, which results in a line-up that would be stable for a longer amount of time.

In the beginning there’s lots of experimentation. The sound of the trumpet is being altered using guitar effects, a guitar synth is being used, as well as many obscure time signatures. After a few live shows on local stages the band decides to take on a different direction with their music. From then on, producing beautiful music would be more important than the experiments.

The bandmembers decide to take post-rock as starting point for the new music, without looking too directly to what other bands in the genre are doing. The melancholic atmosphere and the general feeling of the music dominate. In this way the first new songs are written in mid-2005.

At the end of 2005 the band moves to a more private rehearsal space in Rijsenhout, which gives them more freedom and possibilities. In addition, the band expands to a five piece when pianist Erik joins the rest in December.

This new line-up decides in February 2006 that it’s time to record a first demo, which was then recorded in Rijsenhout in one day. Since then the band has been doing well. The first demo has received a positive response. New songs are written almost continuously. There have been a number of successful live shows. Without a doubt, TBFKAGNK is ready to enter the outside world!
