Very underrated. Loved all their albums to date. Any other fans?
what they were up to, because I started seeing/hearing coincidental references to them and realised it's two and a half years since My Maudlin Career with no news of anything impending.
Though the last few records have been all three years or so apart, so hopefully something will surface next year
Indeed I've always thought that If I ever won the lottery and had a spare few grand, they'd make a top wedding band
happy go-lucky music with melancholy lyrics always gets me, and Camera Obscura are really one of the best at it. Their last 2 albums are brilliant
but they were great at Bowlie 2!
but didnt like what i heard of the one after.
also I went to see them in manchester at jabez clegg. i got there at about 8.45 as you do (what with most people starting at about 9) and they were like 'this is our last song'. not happy.
It was the venue's fault and the band were in an awful mood.
but fall short with the majority
My Maudlin Career is an absolute quality album, how it never got a Mercury nomination is an absolute travesty. And the singer has an utterly gorgeous voice, like bathing in honey.
but I wish they wouldn't have let Echo Falls use French Navy for their Come Dine With Me sponsorship things.
Is one of the best pop songs i've ever heard. Also, "Country Mile" and "James" are absolutely heartbreaking.
