Music Box Unwinds
In 2007 during the hype of Myspace, a profile was created called Music Box Unwinds. The name comes from misheard lyrics in a song by an Australian band called The Scare who I was obsessed with at the time. It started off as a way to promote bands my friends were in and bands that I thought everyone needed to hear. Jump forward a year and I was given my first camera and I decided that a DSLR would be much better than a little Kodak point and shoot. The first gig that MBU covered was the incredible Finch - one of my favourite bands and in one of my favourite venues - King Tuts, Glasgow.
As the years went on we moved from site to site while trying to find the best way to reach the fans of all the bands we were covering. We also wanted to provide the fans with more than just photos of gigs so MBU branched out to interviews to help fans feel closer to their favourite artists. Contributors came on board and helped out immensely, covering gigs in England, Scotland, Wales, Canada and America.
In 2017, we had to take a hiatus due to health and other things that life threw in the way. I finally decided to reboot the site in March 2020 and well... the world went a bit insane. Now, another two years later, we're building up new content and hoping we can return it to its former glory!
Thanks for checking us out!
