Members of Timebox went on to high profile music careers (with Patto, Babe Ruth, the Rutles, amongst many). Our contention here is that Timebox themselves were a vital act in their own right. Essentially intelligent, genre-bending late 60s British pop laced with a surreal sense of humour and regular flashes of maverick unpredictability.
Mod Jazz/ Pop outings and blue eyed soul populate the first half of our complete overview, with psychedelic nuggets and blasts of proto-hard rock (plus a few that defy categorisation) inflecting the second and all recorded within a two year span, with much of it unreleased at the time. They worked the clubs, moved with the times, and left a fascinating body of work for any 60’s fan.
