BIOGRAPHY

In Camera were a London based post-punk band who emerged in the summer of 1978. The seeds were sown when youthful drummer Jeff Wilmott introduced aspiring bass player Pete Moore to singer David Steiner; through this nucleus the addition of guitarist Andrew Gray became possible. An incendiary performance at 'Billy's' in Soho, London resulted in a contract with 4AD Records. In Camera first released the 45 RPM 7" 'Die Laughing/Final Achievement' in 1979, followed six months later by the 4 track 12" 'IV Songs'. Various gigs materialised throughout England, culminating at the end of 1980 in a John Peel session. This resulted in the release of the session on 12" under the title 'Fin', the recording being the final vinyl document of the band before its non-acrimonious split in 1981. A retrospective, '13 (Lucky For Some)' was released in 1992 on CD. All releases were on the 4AD label.

ANOTHER BIOGRAPHY

Comprised of singer/keyboardist David Steiner, guitarist Andrew Gray, bassist Pete Moore and drummer Jeff Wilmott, London post-punkers In Camera came to Ivo's attention when they opened a show for Bauhaus. Displaying a spiky, PiL and Joy Division-influenced sound on their 1980 debut single "Die Laughing" (the first 4AD release engineered by John Fryer) the group had matured considerably by the time of their IV Songs EP at the end ofthe year.

By 1982 the quartet had fallen apart. The Fin EP was their 4AD epitaph: a Peel session from December 1980 which Ivo licensed from the BBC. Easily the band's strongest release, it featured the 12-minute monolith "Fatal Day". Gray remained affiliated with the label, co-founding The Wolfgang Press in 1983, while In Camera briefly reformed in 1991 to record some new material for the compilation CD 13 (Lucky For Some).
