Music from the UK – UNKLE

UNKLE are a British musical outfit founded in 1994.  It is difficult to categorize the genre, some say trip-rock, trip-hop.  I just really love this song which features the lead vocals of Ian Astbury, former front man of The Cult.  The song opens with a short burst of acoustic guitar before building upon the pulsating, insistent beat for which UNKLE (James Lavelle and Richard File) are known for.  This is a very cool video – What do you do if you’ve only got three and a half minutes to live? We watch a character go through shock, panic, frustration, anger and eventually acceptance.
