Shunning vocals to make more room for their soaring distortions, Civil Civic rejected the idea of a front man and instead created 'The Box'. Part evil drum machine, part hobo light-show, all road-case, The Box completes the Man-Machine triptych.
Mixing jaggedly progressive post-punk guitar, jamming melodic fuzz bass and pummelling drum machine beats, delivered in a no-frills lo-fi-pop package, these Europe-based Australian instrumentalists have tapped their own original sound, emailing tracks back and forward, reconstructing and tweaking the others' contributions, and minimising the possibility of rehearsal room punch-ups.
