Camera Obscura - Japan 2010

A superb performance in front of a rather lively crowd at Shindaita Fever on 29th January 2010. Probably the best Camera Obscura bootleg I've ever heard and credit must go to the taper for doing such a remarkable job. Camera Obscura have been around for the best part of thirteen years yet this was their first trip to Japan. I suppose it is the other side of the world and you can't just jump on a number six but they certainly seem to have gone down very well. 2009 was a brilliant year for the Scottish band with their "My Maudlin Career" album finally putting the band on a higher footing and therefore expanding their fanbase. I hope they can keep up the good work with another new record in 2010 but I doubt it will happen, after all it's taken them over a decade to produce four albums. Still I suppose it's quality not quantity.
