In May 2005 I got
a mail from Entakt lead-singer Jonas Villumsen, asking
me to take some photos of his band, Entakt. As usual, when I get
a request like this, I asked him to send a demo, as I didn't know what kind og
music they played. So I got two demos containing very special, but excellent stuff.
I can like a song with very common lyrics, if it has a good melody or a nice mood,
but I would never love a song though having fabulous lyrics, if the melody is
I admit that normally I do not listen too carefully to the lyrics.
But listening to Entakt's demos I had to make an exception:
You can't ignore their absolute genious lyrics. It's modern poetry, which can
easily stand alone if released in a book of poems!
The music is very special
as well. Baal, Olesen & Olesen, Kenneth Thordal,
Alrune Rod and another upcoming band, Mavis are Danish
bands which Entakt may be compared with.
A very promising acquaintance.
Entakt's performance at Christiania, I took
a series of band photos which can be viewed at the bottom of this page.
