!! OMG has it been that long: Queer indie group ‘The Hidden Cameras’ 20th anniversary reissue + tour with Owen Pallett !!

The Hidden Cameras a Small of Our Own Reissue

The Hidden Cameras, fronted by singer-songwriter Joel Gibb, emerged as a writhing queer mass in Toronto’s indie rock scene in the early 2000s, with riotous church shows featuring big pop melodies, raucous harmonies, and masked dancers in Y-fronts. Their shows were collective, cathartic, debauched, and defined the moment in time for all who were there (and we hope you were!).

The Hidden Cameras circa 2003

Twenty years later—on April 14—their first album The Smell of Our Own is being re-issued by legendary UK label Rough Trade (pre-order here) alongside the seldom-screened 2005 documentary Music Is My Boyfriend, directed by Robert Kennedy.

Plus, the band will be touring the UK and Europe this spring with fellow Canadian pop auteur Owen Pallett.

  1. Great for people in Europe (and I’m sure since they are Canadians, they have or will tour there) but this leave those of us in the USA (and I guess elsewhere?) as being SOL as far as seeing them tour in person.
