In Camera Era on 2LP

In Camera - David Steiner (voice / keyboards), Andrew Gray (guitar), Pete Moore (bass) and Jeff Wilmott (drums, piano) – are among the more mysterious acts of 4AD's early alumni (Bauhaus, The Birthday Party, MASS, Modern English, Rema-Rema, The The).

Active between 1978 and 1981, in the thick of London's post-punk scene, they enjoyed an intense and fruitful short time together. Coming to the label's attention when they supported Bauhaus at the Billy's venue in Soho, their only releases came with two singles in 1980 – the double A-side 7" of "Final Achievement" and "Die Laughing" and the IV Songs EP. Calling it a day before they recorded an album, 4AD fittingly issued the posthumous release of the 12" EP, Fin, using the band's epic, three-track John Peel Session.

10 years after amicably splitting, 4AD released the now long out of print retrospective, 13 (Lucky For Some), coercing the band back in to a studio to record four songs they had played live but not committed to tape to complete the release. Things returned to quiet until interest to licence their music came from experimental French label Desire Records (who subsequently pressed up a limited mini-album of the first two singles entitled IV Songs + II in 2011) sparking In Camera's interest to compile Era, the definitive and final word on their band.

Era focuses solely on the group's earlier material with the deluxe vinyl package containing all but one track from their three singles and seven never-before-released tracks spread over two records.
