Box Codax – Hellabuster / Choco Pudding

GOMMA153 Box Codax cover

Release: 11 March 2011
Cat#: Gomma 153

As you might know we always have been big Franz Ferdinand fans here at Gomma. So you can imagine how happy we were when Nick McCarthy, mastermind and guitar man in FF asked us if we wanna release his solo project: Box Codax. We know him, because he already released the album of his early days’ band Kamerakino on our label 8 years ago.

So now after FF years it’s time for Box Codax, his band with his oldest friend Alex Ragnew and his wife Manuela Gernedel. And this is, sorry: an amazing album. It’s like a piece of theater. A Happening. 13 songs with 13 videos by English and German film artists. Here is the first single Hellabuster/Choco Pudding, co-produced by Metronomy.

Box Codax Countdown

In early May we will release the new Box Codax album. Box Codax is the band of Nick McCarthy (mastermind and guitar man of Franz Ferdinand) and his friend Alex Ragnew. This album is a special one. Really. Think somewhere between Zappa and the more far out DFA records.

For each song, there will be a video by young artists from Britain and Germany, which we will show counting down to the album. Above is the first episode, Sandy Moffat. Enjoy!


New Box Codax Album out early 2011!

Nick McCarthy & Jonas Imbery in the Gomma studio, just finished the next
Box Codax album with contributions by Mike Fraser, Metronomy, Munk,
Joseph Mount, Telonius, Michael Parker, Paul Thomson, and many more.
Watch out!
