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.

Maybe you're here from Greece, and heard my song on the 2022 Sky Express TV ad? Hello to you!

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

1/6: Edinburgh, 2001: I had been writing music for a few years.

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

2/6: Domino Records liked the songs. We got things organised and put out a record.

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

5/6: One of the songs was used in a film, Hallam Foe (Best Music award, Berlin Film Festival) and also in a cinema advert (Golden Horse Film Festival, Taiwan).

Then it was used in a TV ad campaign in Greece, and got into the Greek Shazam Top 200, peaking at number 7.

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
