UNKLE scavenger hunt

We know, we know: you're sick of bloody Glastonbury and if you were that bothered you'd have gone down to Somerset.

Luckily, it's possible to have some fun without catching trench foot or having Michael Eavis bark 'you ARE having fun' at you. Because this weekend, UNKLE are starting a sort of scavenger hunt, where you can start to collect a mini album from across four websites. The tracks go together to make up a whole piece, and they themselves are a bit of the forthcoming UNKLE album proper. There's a press release which explains it all:

Although fans will have to collect the tracks individually, when all four (tracks 5, 6, 7 and 8 on the album) are played consecutively, in order, they play as one extended, mixed piece of music that comprises the middle section of the record.

The four tracks will be made available as follows:

Track 5 - Kaned And Abel via on Fri, June 27th

Track 8 - Chemical (feat. Josh Homme) via Pitchfork on Mon, June 30th

Track 6 - Blade In The Back (feat. Gavin Clark) via on Wed, July 2nd

Track 7 - Synthetic Water via on Fri, July 4th

You can scamper about the internet gathering the pieces from now. Or, of course, save yourself the effort and buy End Titles… Stories for Film when it comes out instead.
