Idiot Box are a quirky power pop/rock band based in Bradford, UK. They formed in 1998 around Rick Idiot (guitar/vocals) as original members' Gaz Idiot (drums), and Adam Cockburn (guitar), previous band That Man There dissolved during the hard Winter of '97. The original lineup was fleshed out by Mickey Motorvator on bass. Mickey left around the time of the Serbian/Bosnian conflict to concentrate on sticking it to the Man, so Gaz switched to bass whilst Steven Wilson joined on drums. Ben Holden also joined on guitar, and Adam left shortly afterwards.
