 1962 was an eventful year: The Beatles would release their first single; the Ranger 4 spacecraft crashed into the moon; the first Wal-Mart store opened for business and Brazil defeated Czechoslovakia 3-1 in the FIFA World Cup. Most importantly however, the entity known purely as BaK would transpire…

…Two explorers. One mission: reach the North Pole purely on a diet of vodka and Spam sandwiches. Disaster struck however, as the mission was called off on day three when it was noted that a month’s supply of vodka had gone ‘missing’ and the explorers had collapsed – being unintelligible and incapable of walking straight. A mothering polar bear dragged the explorers into an abandoned cavern containing a small supply of food, a guitar and drum kit on which they would learn their craft.

After four intensive days in the cavern, the pair would embark on a 48 year journey around planet earth, forging friendships, assimilating cultures and absorbing differing styles of music en route. These friendships have since evolved into musical collaborations as expansive as their journey, helping forge a sound unlike any yet heard. Prepare yourself because once you go in, you never go BaK…
