The Gothenburg based band, Lucknow Pact was formed in 2002 by Markus Hasselblom
, Mischa Hayman, Andreas Hartman
and Lars Nordgren. Carl-Magnus Berger soon joined on keyboards. The members had a common goal to take the 80’s and 90’s guitar based indie music to a whole new level. Combining simple pop harmonies with a vibrant rhythm section, jangling chorus guitars and passionate vocals was their way of doing just that. After the release of their first vinyl single – A Few Drinks A Few Laughs
– in 2004 the band was soon to be the talk of the swedish indie scene. The band got signed by Hit In Yo Soul Records
and released their debut album – Youth Is For The Old
– the following year. By then drummer Lars Nordgren had left the band and been replaced by talented Therese ”Tammy” Karlsson
. Carl-Magnus Berger and Bass player Andreas Hartman both left the band and Fredrik Eriksson joined in 2007.
