Camera Obscura!

I took Mrs Saul to see sickening schmaltzfest PS I love you the other week. It was full of cliched US rom-com scenes, overdone sentimentality, contrived slapstick and Irish men saying ‘ho horrrr’ and ‘bejaysus’. I quite enjoyed it.
The only thing that rescued my dignity was discovering the name of the band whose song ‘Hey Lloyd, I’m ready to be heartbroken’ is played during the opening credits. It’s not on the ‘PS I love you’ soundtrack (no, I didn’t buy it, I checked the track listing on Amazon), but a quick Google and I found who recorded it – a Scottish band called Camera Obscura.
I’ve now got all three of their albums on permanent rotation. Think Belle and Sebastien’s best with a bit more production and more conventional rhymes. Brilliant stuff – well worth an hour and a half of ‘ho horrr’, ‘bejaysus’ and contrived slapstick to have discovered it.
