By James Gaunt

We came across this book after James submitted a pitch for the upcoming Issue 8. It is interesting, geeky and passionately researched. We love to support our contributors where possible so wanted to put this out there. We only have 30 copies so don't sleep.


1998 saw the release of UNKLE's Psyence Fiction, an album created by James Lavelle and DJ Shadow with guests including Radiohead's Thom Yorke and Beastie Boys Mike D. The album had been years in the making with James Lavelle becoming unsatisfied with UNKLE and their early Trip Hop sound. This led to recording sessions being abandoned, including an entire albums worth of material before Lavelle brought in DJ Shadow to create a new sound for UNKLE. This book details the life of James Lavelle as he moved from local DJ, record label owner, and musician with the release of Psyence Fiction.
