"And if they ever find me, they will know" ('Amsterdam')

Taken from the album, Fifth Column, U.N.P.O.C.'s debut 45 is a slice of outsider pop at its most melodic and triumphant. A singular vision and mastery of his own lo-fi mini studio sets U.N.P.O.C. apart from the others, as he belts his way through these all-too brief moments of musical isolationism. 'Amsterdam' and its flipside, 'Here On My Own', are pop gems in another world, where the tools of a Spector or Wilson are stripped down to the basics: guitars, bass, multi-tracked voice, and the spectral sound of studio hiss and hum. Setting out from that same wondrous place as the near-legendary Fence Collective (King Creosote, Pip Dylan, James Yorkston), U.N.P.O.C.'s unique sound is something to treasure, and his songs are those that, once heard, cannot leave you behind.
