"The Hidden Cameras. in collaboration with Rough Trade Records, announce a 20th anniversary expanded deluxe reissue of their majestic debut album, ‘The Smell of Our Own’. Available to independent retailers as a deluxe double LP edition on yellow vinyl, featuring bonus demos and live session recordings. The Hidden Cameras burst onto the Toronto music scene in the early 2000s, boasting an irresistible combination of pop and queer sensibilities. Playing self-proclaimed ‘Gay Church Folk Music’, a new genre of their own making and songs ranging from haunted, aching ballads to foot stomping anthems, the band’s outrageous stage shows packed such disparate venues as sweaty dance bars, art museums, working porn cinemas as well as many churches. Fronted by lead singer songwriter Joel Gibb, the ensemble continues their musical provocations to this day, with Berlin now as their centre of gravity."
