School friends Nils Frahm and Frederic Gmeiner met Sebastian Singwald when he attended their school in Hamburg for a fortnight in ‘89. Whilst the musical bond was instant, disaster intervened at a fairground gig when seats from a roundabout broke throwing two people onto the stage. They decided never to play together again. Some years later, the trio began to play again and Nonkeen were born, The Gamble is their debut album. Frahm says that it is the album he is most proud of. The vinyl version contains an exclusive track, For Voice.
