GITBOX: Pidgin for the group's chosen instrument, the steel-string acoustic guitar
REBELLION: A subversion of the orthodoxy in the guitar's native jazz/blues/rock tradition.
Unashamedly analog, Gitbox Rebellion is a 6-piece guitar ensemble, playing original music composed by and for the group
Orchestral & atmospheric, composed and chaotic, the music spans and defies the genres of jazz, rock, folk and chamber music.
The Guitar ensemble, who perform intricate and clever original compositions as well as a few much loved guitar hero covers, such as The Good, The Bad and The Ugly and Guitar Boogie… Gitbox has to be heard live to fully appreciate the acoustic guitar and the differences each player brings to the instrument

"This year, 2021, is Rattle’s 30th anniversary as an advocate for New Zealand art-music, and it gives us enormous pleasure to mark the occasion with a new album from Gitbox, the band that kicked things off for the label three decades ago with their much-loved and widely acclaimed Pesky Digits, Rattle’s very first release back in 1991. As curveballs go, we couldn’t have asked for a nicer one. The group’s music is as unique and vibrant as ever, just as Rattle’s enthusiasm for artists who follow their own compass is not only undiminished but even more determined as we move into our fourth decade."
