Camera Obscura - Destitution (7'', 1983)

Camera Obscura was formed in the winter of 1982 by Nigel James & 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.
