i H8 Camera, whose name comes from a misquote from a French journalist, formed in 2004 around the nucleus of The Love Substitutes (Craig Ward, Rudy Trouvé, Mauro Pawlowski and Bert Lenaerts) to avoid cancelling gigs due to illness. Rudy Trouvé gathered a bunch of friends and collaborators to perform a totally improvised set with no planning, leadership or prior discussion. i H8 Camera was formed and the concept stuck and the band began to perform more and more frequently with a fluctuating line-up of whoever was available at the time. This has continued since on a semi regular basis and as the members have more often than not been in bands together the music has been as suprisingly coherent as it is free and fun to listen to.
Since day one Jezus Factory Records have been massive fans of Belgian music and in July 2007 released the Pawlowski, Trouvé & Ward to significant critical acclaim. After listening to i H8 Camera and seeing the diversity of the music to be on a par with the late great Kiss My Jazz we suggested to Craig the possibility of some release. This is the first volume and will come in a deluxe CD book edition with exclusive artwork from Rudy Trouvé. This volume is particularly intoxicating due to some fantastic vocal freak-outs from the legendary Mark Meyers of Pox.
What you hear on this CD is a selection of songs edited by Craig Ward onto one continuous 53 minute track from performances spanning from 2004 to 2007.
