|The Hidden Cameras - Miracle (Out on 02/06/03)|
The Hidden Cameras described their music "Gay, Church folk-music", with gay meaning happy and jovial of course. 'Miracle' is a good single for people to try out this maverick 14 plus member Canadian outfit, as it hides dark and sinister lyrics behind a canvass of colourful and heart warming music. The topic for this song is the sinister nature of love and relationships:
"He tells me that I'm the only one that can carry his disease I'm made to be an animal by his love And to bear his baby"
that can carry his disease
I'm made to be an animal by his love
And to bear his baby"
To compare the Hidden Cameras directly to the Polyphonic Spree (or even to call them a gay version of the Spree) is too misunderstand the depth and guts of the band, who tackle serious issues in a Jerry Springer audience bating manner. The Hidden Cameras are also known in their native land for their lively and memorable live shows (several members dress in bold and outrageous costumes), they are supporting The Sleepy Jackson around the UK to promote the new single and the album. Those willing to laugh in the face of prejudice and listen to them or go and see them will not be disappointed.
