One of those bands that made you feel a bit clever for liking them, Red Box made a classic debut album which flopped terribly - and, as it turns out, quite unnecessarily. Thanks, record label types!

Mini Viva – One Touch

(Mini) Viva Forever! Brand new contributor Joe Anderton with a cautionary tale of bad scheduling that consigned one of pop's most exciting new acts to the dumper.
