THE VIRGIN TONGUES

In 2006, Duncan McKnight and Nima Ashe decided to move from Los Angeles, California to Berlin, Germany. There they met Robert Michael Giddens and began playing shows under the name Duncan McKnight band, building a decent fanbase and working with a psychedelic rock label in Berlin called Trip in Time records. The trio later decided on the name The Virgin Tongues and kept playing shows, eventually opening for The Kills in Berlin. On May 1st, 2009 while on tour to Reykjavik Iceland (and to record their debut album with Singapore Sling frontman Henrik Bjornsson), McKnight fell from a window in downtown Reykjavik, suffering serious injuries and spending 9 months in the hospital learning how to walk and talk again. Despite valiant efforts, The Virgin Tongues did not play together again – and only a few recordings remain from those days.
