Absolutely,the early work was ground-breaking.not so much in favour of the elitist 'vinyl factory' releases of recent years.seems like a massive middle finger to those who listened with faith in the early days.
Obviously I can't speak for the general populous but I reckon alot of people would agree with me on this.last thing I bought was end titles which was great.now it seems if you want to own any of unkle's material on vinyl you need a f##cking overdraft.very disappointing from James lavelle who obviously has been influenced by the same music as myself (everything from led zeppelin to Vangelis)
What happened to you James? Mo Wax to Mo money.

James Lavelle is the heart and soul of the Unkle projects and albums. Organising and working with an all-star cast James has produced some of the best musical works of recent times. Unkle has managed to transform itself from album to album; spoiling listeners with a blend of hip hop, breaks, rock and cinematic pieces. Genre or style is not important to Unkle but simply the goal to create great original music where there is a large void..
The Unklesounds live, mixes and edits are also magnificent; there is too much to recommend here but the standard of every release is consistently excellent. In addition to the music Unkle keeps itself interesting with extra material, unconventinal merchandise and cool artwork. The most recent CD album "War Stories" has a hidden bonus track at the end of the album as if the golden collaborations with Josh Homme, Ian Astonbury & Gavin Clark were not enough! Check it out UNKLE is KING!

A group that achieved super stardom as soon as the first production was released. With James Lavelle heading this group up, there is no hit or miss with U.N.K.L.E. . Every Production has a lot of thought put into it and they always seem to be good. When James Lavelle first hit the shelves, he became an instant hit. However, he felt that this instant fame and fortune was not his character, and has tried to keep his gigs low profile (ie Bars and small clubs). This goes to show that U.N.K.L.E. is NOT in it for the money, so must be in it for the music. Any artist thats into production for the music is bound to incorporate a lot of feeling into their music, and U.N.K.L.E. is no exception. High quality thoughtful music that is produced for the music.
