I shall be playing this TWICE at DSFAR on Friday night.

It's way better than the original.

Brilliant band. I'd love to see them.

I'm obsessed by the track "Lloyd, I'm ready to be heartbroken" at the moment.

Anyone know If the 2 disc korean version of 'Lets get out of this country' worth splashing out on? I've not got any of the singles or b -sides, and for some reason didn't get the album when it came out despite seeing them on tour promoting it and having one of the best (and hottest) gig nites ever.

They're playing Truck, Summer Sundae and Connect as well. Their blog at the start of the year referred to the album being aimed for autumn, but whether that's coming forward who can say. (Camera Obscura, probably.)

the band leave for Stockholm on Saturday to start the recording sessions for the new album. they're in for 2-3 weeks, and then the record will be mixed in the summer.

We don't have a release date as yet, it will likely be the start of next year for the album, with a single out just before, but who knows. There will certainly be new songs in the set over the summer.

I was watching the movie 'Over her dead body' on my flight back home last weekend, and to my surprise I heard 'Lloyd, are you ready to be heartbroken' playing over the closing credits. It almost made up for a really bad movie.

I got sent the last Clientele album and thought, "yeh, quite nice". Some nice tunes on that.

then went to see them with The Broken Family Band and they bored the shizzle outta me.

I kept thinking of the earlier incarnations of Spinal Tap for some reason.

no i haven't and i have to say i don't know anything about clock strikes 13. i just recently got a copy of the split with relict off ebay and didn't realise until it arrived that pam berry did the vocals on the 'i can't seem to make you mine'. i was suitably overjoyed.

is it a different recording of "we could walk together" to the one 'suburban light'?



to get back on topic; does this mean there's going to be a new camera obscura album soon?
