About Camera Obscura

There are at least three artists named Camera Obscura:

1) Scottish indie pop band formed in 1996 by Tracyanne Campbell, John Henderson, and Gavin Dunbar. Since their debut album Biggest Bluest Hi-Fi released in 2002, they have mainly played acoustic, melancholic folk pop influenced by various sixties artists and contemporary UK indie pop groups.

Camera Obscura released a second album, Underachievers Please Try Harder, the following year, and in September, 2005, the band started recording their next album, named Let's Get out of This Country, with producer Jari Haapalainen. This album was released on June 06, 2006 and appeared high up in many critical lists of the 'best albums of 2006'.

2) A post-hardcore band based in San Diego, CA, but later moved to MN. Formed in 1997/8 and disbanded in 2000, during their shorth lifespan they released two 7 inch singles (Writing Kodak / We Talked Midi and To Paint The Kettle Black / ...Something About A Nightmare: Curtain 2, both released on Three One G), a full-length, "To Change The Shape Of An Envelope" on Troubleman Unlimited and a tour split CD with The Faint and Vue on Insound.

Members:
Russell White - Vocals (Also a member of Song of Zarathustra, The Shortwave Channel & The Dropscience, currently recoring with Champagne Kiss & Spacehorse)
Michelle Maskovich - Vocals/Keyboards (Also a member of Song of Zarathustra & Swing Kids, currently recoring with Champagne Kiss)
Duane Pitre - Guitar (A professional skateboarded for Alien Workshop, now composes abstract and often minimal sound compositions as Pilotram)
William Lamb - Drums (Now in Die Princess Die)

3) British minimal synth band Camera Obscura (also Camera · Obscura) was formed in the winter of 1982 by Nigel James and Peter Oldroyd.

'Destitution' and 'Race in Athens' became the duo's first single on Small Wonder Records in the spring of 1983, followed by 'Village of Stars' b/w 'Insect' for the B-side, in London, at the Atmosphere studios on Wardour Street . These tracks were never released and sadly the masters have not survived.

Camera played live extensively at this time and they soldiered on into 1985 with a 4-piece line up (Gary Scargill and Rob Gospel were added) and the Quartet formed Paradise Now in '86. Nigel left in '87 and was replaced by Steve Wright from "Fiat Lux". Sadly the Band ended there. However, Camera Obscura never actually split up.
