Unknown Mortal Orchestra an accidental success story
Ruban Nielson, the driving force in Unknown Mortal Orchestra, came to Portland a few years ago thinking his music career was over. The guitarist grew up in New Zealand and played in a punk band, the Mint Chicks, with his brother for a number of years. When the band broke up, Nielson ended up in Portland with the intention of making a fresh start in a new career.
