I'm assuming they did something for this particular track, since it features A LOT of guests, as it's UNKLE's album and he's a well known trip hop artist (I think we all know that fact already though derp)

Here's the credits for all the features on that particular track. Weird to see them credited as so. I wonder what part of the track they did, perhaps the ambience you hear in the background like a minute or so in? https://www.discogs.com/UNKLE-The-Road- ... e/13424335

Why? This is pretty "lavish" track. Pretty dark also. Not a huge UNKLE fan, but this is track is not bad.

It's just not something that I'd ever want to listen to

Sounds far too generic overall for me to think that BoC was involved in the creation of this particular composition. The lyrics seem incredibly lazy, IMO, and nothing at all is special about this one. It's not the worst thing I have ever heard but it's like a 3/10 in my book.

BoC probably has nothing to do with this, if I were a betting man that's what I would declare. They probably would have just wrote Boards of Canada in there instead of BOC, which I speculate is just some rando's initials or something of the sort. Sure, its weird that it says BOC, though. I wouldn't read into this at all.

Yawn. Next.

I quite dislike the track. It isn't my thing by any stretch, but the production is pretty decent.
If BoC did play any part in this, it would have been production and nothing else.
That is incredibly unlikely, though.

^ If someone told me BoC were involved in the first track you posted of the two, I might actually be inclined to believe them. The other, not so much.

Yeah that's the weird thing. I originally posted the discogs link since I wasn't sure if people were aware of it being anywhere without a source but then I realize the topic link says it. I'm stupid. XD

But yeah, this is what's weird... as it's a different BoC but it could be this obscure person with the same name who worked on the track, since they make "leftfield" electronica and thats not far from what UNKLE is known for.

Perhaps someone out there can give a confirmation. Does UNKLE have a twitter? Would it be rude to ask?

"FUND UPDATE: Brian O’Connor (aka BOC) has been battling cancer for the past nine years. Now, even his best days are difficult to manage. Learn more at http://bit.ly/2YAhypZ "

Most likely a different BOC?

God bless, I hope he pulls through.
Good find, though. Thanks. That certainly puts the subject to rest as far as I am concerned, it is most likely O'Connor.

Wow, that's awful he's been battling cancer, but also kind of cool he contributed to this song!
There are a lot of different 'me's, you know. There's the mad me, when I get angry.

Aw man, that's awful to hear O'Conner having cancer. I hope he can pull through the best he can. :( Discogs needs to definitely update that BoC listing, because no way in hell is Brian O'Conner the same "BoC" that's shown on the page (which is some Chinese electronica???)

He is/was the bassist for Eagles of Death Metal - so if you want to hear his stuff, check them out :wink:

Ah. That makes more sense. Thanks everyone for sleuthing that one out.

Back to the barren wasteland of waiting for new BOC material...at least we got that Dead Dogs Two instrumental.
