Unextraordinary Gentlemen is a musical project formed in Los Angeles in 2005 by bassist/keyboardist Richard Pilawski & vocalist/lyricist Eric Schreeck to "...explore our love for post-punk, synth-pop, industrial & experimental music combined with the literary genre of Victorian fantasy." The project went public in early 2007, joined by Jennifer Pomerantz on violin. The band's name is a tongue-in-cheek nod to Alan Moore's The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen.
UXG has been called one of the "foremost of the musical assets of... steampunk" and has been interviewed by or featured in several genre and local scene publications. Their first CD, 5 Tales from God-Only-Knows received positive reviews from several sources, most notably ReGen magazine, Mick Mercer and Sepiachord. Mick Mercer called their second release, No Hands To Guide Us, "most impressive". In December 2011, the 2010 version of their song, "Open Arms, Empty Air" was a Track of the Week on the UK review site, "Keep Pop Loud".
