Mogwai Music Box

Posted: March 10th, 2004, by Marceline Smith

Possibly the greatest piece of band merchandising ever, I bring you the Mogwai Music Box!

I just got mine in the post yesterday after buying it in a nice bit of OH MY GOD BEST THING EVER impulse buying on Friday. We used to play with music boxes like these in a shop called Luckpenny in Elgin when we were kids and those were exciting enough when playing stuff like The Entertainer and Greensleeves. Hearing one play a plinky-plinky Tracy by Mogwai is truly wondrous. Now I have dug out Young Team so I can listen to the orginal Tracy and get the handle turning timing correct.

Marceline is the fierce, terrifying force behind diskant.net, laughing with disdain as she fires sharpened blades of sarcasm in all directions. Based in Scotland, her lexicon consists of words such as 'jings', 'aboot' and 'aye': our trained voice analysts are yet to decipher some of the relentless stream of genius uttered on a twenty-four hour basis. Marceline's hobbies include working too much and going out in bad weather.
