Before today I never knew what a Skatchbox was, but I knew I’d made loads of them as a child – you probably have too! If you’ve taken a cardboard box, cardboard tube, empty biscuit tin and stretched elastic bands across them, and twanged away at your primitive “guitar” you were actually playing a basic Skatchbox.

Take that idea just a little further with combs, scrapers, contact mics and more, and you have a Skatchbox. There are even songs and whole CDs featuring Skatchboxes, as well as songs about Skatchboxes too – “Scratchbox Blues” to name one.
