Amidst Tesco-value tea drinking sessions with members of the near-legendary Fence Collective (James Yorkston, King Creosote, Lone Pigeon, Pip Dylan etc), Tom Bauchop began home recordings for Fifth Column, his debut album. Tom describes Fifth Column as the culmination of a process of compressing four previous attempts at U.N.P.O.C. albums, into 'something good'... Well 'something good' is a bit of an understatement.

Fifth Column is a lo-fi production where the sentiment is high; it's an out of time pop masterpiece, similar in spirit to Plush's debut sides. As well as melodic nods to The Kinks, Buddy Holly and The Ronettes, it's also reminiscent of Roky Erickson's field recordings and the outsider pop-art of a Brian Wilson. Tom seems to be writing and recording in that same place of self-discovery and intimacy from which a Beach Boys track like 'In My Room' once emerged.
