Box Codax are a band from Glasgow, Scotland. It is made up of Nick McCarthy of the alternative rock band Franz Ferdinand, Manuela Gernedel, and Alexander Ragnew. The band's first album, Only An Orchard Away (2006), has been described as a collection of songs, often romantic and whimsical nostalgia, at other times scrappy and punky. It is an honest and genuine collection of witty pidgin English lyricism, dark humour and the award-winning song writing of a pop genius presented out of context in these lo-fi recordings.
