Coming soon: Trilogy EP

Updated: Apr 5

Your Funny Uncle is proud to announce his new EP Trilogy. It will be released on 5 April 2024 through Bandcamp, other online shops, on most streaming platforms and of course on this very website. The songs on Trilogy were all written and produced by Your Funny Uncle.


Trilogy was inspired by the underground film trilogy FLESH/TRASH/HEAT, produced by Andy Warhol in his famous Factory between 1968 and 1972. All three films were directed by Paul Morrissey and had Joe Dallesandro in the leading role.

A few anecdotes about the films


Flesh (1968) was filmed on location in New York and is characterised by its seemingly amateurish style, which sets it apart from conventional Hollywood productions. The original film material is full of sound and image jumps, and the image is sometimes blurred or ends abruptly.


Trash (1970) is more professional in terms of editing and sound. The actress Sissy Spacek, who was still unknown at the time, made a small appearance, but this was later edited out. It was also filmed on location in New York.


Heat (1972) was set in Hollywood. The property where Sally Todd lives in the film was Boris Karloff's former mansion. The scenes in the hotel, on the other hand, were shot in New York.


About the EP


Trilogy was conceived as an homage to Andy Warhol, to the Factory, to art and to the era around the end of the 60s and the beginning of the 70s, but also to the city of New York then and now. Over 50 years ago, it was a time of upheaval (isn't it always?), insecurity, sexual revolution, war, rebellion, experimentation with drugs, (then) new technologies and so much more. With all its beautiful but also dark sides. And actually, not so much different from today,


The songs on Trilogy are intended to work both in conjunction with the films and the era, but also completely independently of them.
