48 Cameras - B-Sides Are For Lovers ,LP,1985,Belgium

48 Cameras are known as an international & musical project of variable geometry (Belgium, Monaco & United Kingdom for now). Some of its members never met the others. During the past years, this co-operative of musicians & non musicians recorded 8 official albums & welcomed guests - mostly via Internet - coming from various countries, cultures & disciplines, guests as Rodolphe Burger, Sandy Dillon, DJ Olive, Michael Gira, Tom Heasley, Gerard Malanga, Charlemagne Palestine, Vesica Piscis, etc. This methodology has led to a kind of domino theory effect creating an ever increasing network of contributors & an ever evolving series of musical accidents. Some of its members also appeared on various side-projects. Thus, David Coulter & Jean Marie Mathoul recorded an album with Charlemagne Palestine & another one with Charlemagne Palestine & Michael Gira. More on the official website : where some of the albums are still available via PayPal. Check "pics" to have access to an illustrated discography. Please note that the complete titles of these 5 songs, taken from "After all, isn't tango the dance of the drunk man?" (2006), are "This river may spring to life again", "All stories are love stories are short stories", "Try to remember a similar day", "Nine independent doors open to Selmer Close" and "Terence Stamp for a time". Oh, please also note that we do not want "comments" or so but feel free to contact us via our website or via "MySpace / My Mail". As for the "adds", we choose to privilege close friends, collaborators, personal heroes, stateless artists, "starving angels" & some "beautiful & moody walkers" met "here, there & everywhere" by accident on MySpace. "Our music could be a music written in a foreign language that we would not intend to completely manage". Thank you !
"48 Cameras may wear bow ties but they contain espionage equipment. B-Sides are for lovers like velvet skin tight gloves conceiling razor blades. Electronic temptation without silly haircuts". in ZigZag 1985 (UK)
