About u.n.p.o.c.


Hi, I'm Tom. There I am in 2003.

This is my website for my band, unpoc, and especially for my 2003 record, Fifth Column.

The album was released by Domino Records on CD and vinyl. It's on the big streaming sites these days too.


Have a little (6-picture) read about unpoc below, if you like.





unpoc recording gear

1/6: I had been writing music for a few years.

My musical friends here in Edinburgh said my latest songs were sounding good, and I should do something with them. So we sent a demo tape to London.




unpoc album sleeve

2/6: That got me in touch with Domino Records. They liked the songs, so we got things organised and put out a record!

Unpoc means "unable to navigate, probably on course".





unpoc review in Swedish magazine called Sonic

3/6: The album got some nice press reviews, especially in Sweden.

4/6: I was invited over there to play some shows. There we are, in Stockholm. Great place!

5/6: One of the songs was used in a film, Hallam Foe. The film won the Best Music award at the Berlin Film Festival. The song was also used over in Taiwan, in an advert for their Golden Horse Film Festival.




tom now

6/6: I still write music now, but my Fifth Column songs are my most popular ones.

It's nice when I meet people who like the album or were at my concerts, so make sure to say hello if you see me.

Bye for now. /Tom
