Touch Wood


The core-group of GITBOX REBELLION, Nigel, Kim, Jonathan and Russell, are here joined by a number of friends and a variety of instrumental textures to expand the tonal range of the GITBOX sound. Touch Wood is a very attractive album, infused with a colourful mix of generic and cultural influences, inventive performance and recording techniques, and an undeniable musical passion. The dominant spirit in the music is one of joy and affirmation, and it would be a heart hard indeed that could resist its infectious charm.
