Camera Obscura was formed in the winter of 1982 by Peter Oldroyd and Nigel James from York, UK. They met in a nightclub after a gig and four compositions came out of the initial session of writing and two of them, 'Destitution' and 'Race in Athens' became the duo's first 7" single on Small Wonder Records in the spring of 1983.
