Camera Obscura was a new wave/synthpop band formed in 1982 in York, England, by Peter Oldroyd and Nigel James. They signed to Small Wonder Records in 1983 and reached no. 32 on the UK Indie Chart with the single "Destitution". In 1986 the band split, reformed for a tour of Germany in 2005 after signing to German label Anna Logue Records. They have since released an album of recordings from 1983, Horizons of Suburbia, two singles "Strange Faces", "Strange Faces 2006" and a live EP from a show in Hannover, Germany.

Today’s request was for Camera Obscura’s Horizons of Suburbia LP, a synth/wave gem from 1983. These ten tracks were recorded fifteen years ago but remained unreleased until 2005. Previously, the only documented Camera Obscura releases were a 7 single and a lone compilation appearance. For the record, there seem to be several bands bearing the same name, including a rather prominent indie pop group.

Tracklist: 1. Escape From The City, 2. Horizons Of Suburbia, 3. The Mandarin Man, 4. Fever Pitch, 5. Vincent Van Gogh, 6. Destitution, 7. Circular Waves, 8. Scarlet Vixen, 9. Mystery Box, 10. Race In Athens. 1. Escape From The City. 2. Horizons Of Suburbia.
