Hello Richard,
A freind of mine just swtiched me on to the band Camera Obscura...I can't stop listening to the track If Looks Could Kill - bloody marvellous! So I checked out their myspace page and there you are at the very top of their 'influences' list and in their 'friends' section. You really are a bastion of all that is good about music in the U.K Mr Hawley.

Anyway, here's my question....Is sheffield's own Clinton Woods going to be able to beat diamond encrusted Antonio Tarver tonight or what?!

For thise on the forum who have not yet checked out Camera Obscura, here's the link:

Camera Obscura are great and indeed a member of the group posts on this forum from time to time.

Lovely music.

Camera Obscura are wonderful. Beautiful music, witty lyrics. finally got their first album there the other day. Its a crime that they're not well known.

I just bought Camera Obscuras last album off of the CD Wow website which was recommended to me; if I have any problems I'll let you know...

Poor old Clinton Woods, better luck next time if you're out there! :(

My cd came through this afternoon so CD WOW did good!

I can see what you meant Richard about it having a lot of heart; the lyrics are very sensitive and the lovely melodies that accompany them really give the whole album a soulful and touching feel...I'm getting emotional here! :wink:

Fantastic stuff.

I saw an elsebound train, on the overpass
In the driving rain, every ticket costs the same
For where you can't go
Mustang horses, champagne glasses
Anything frail anything wild
It's the price of living motion, what's beautiful is broken
And grace is just the measure of a fall.
