Love Camp 7 - s/t ep (1989, Bowlmor)

Love Camp 7 were a little known NYC export who issued a couple of albums in the '90, but this five-cut ep is where it all started.  "Take Love Where You Can Find It" is a dichotomy of feeble Beatles-esque harmonies clothes-pinned to dissonant instrumentation that only a slacker would applaud.  Their approach is not dissimilar to that of some of the more oddball SST Records bands like Painted Willie.  In fact, this wax doesn't really hit it's proverbial stride until "Janice in a Green Light" kicks, proving that LC7 can project a serious hook when they make the effort.  Ditto for the equally tuneful "Under the Sign of Saturn," bearing lite post-punk textures.  Indie rock, baby. 

01. Take Love Where You Can Find It
02. Father Serra's Children
03. Janice in a Green Light
04. Under the Sign of Saturn
05. Myra Breckenridge

Thanks for this, yup - worth hanging on for track 3.Spot on about the lazy Beatles tunes at the start - by the end they've morphed into The Stone...

Myra Breckenridge is a truly great song. The others are no slouches. The band is still around and their later albums are well worth checking out, especially their latest, entitled Love Camp VII (natch!).
