was an electronic instrumental project begun by drummer David Narcizo
after Throwing Muses
first split up following their 1996 Limbo
album. Lakuna first released a 12-inch called So Happy
and then a 1999
full-length album called Castle of Crime.
Narcizo provided drums, drum programming, and keyboards on all the tracks. The album's guest musicians included Bernard Georges
on bass, Kristin Hersh
on guitar loops, Belly
's Tom Gorman on bass, Melissa "Misi" Narcizo on piano and keyboards, and Frank Gardner on bass and bass synthesizer. Narcizo employed tape loops
from obscure, vintage music to achieve the album's ambient
-styled instrumental sounds.
Lakuna recorded on the 4AD and Throwing Music labels.
