Camp Radio formed in early 2005... the group includes Chris Page on guitar and vocals, Dave Draves on bass, and Scott Terry behind the drum kit.
During the ‘90s, Page cut his teeth with pop punk outfit The Stand GT, releasing numerous 7-inches, LPs, and CDs as well as touring Canada seven times with the band before starting to play solo, under both his own name and the moniker The Glen Nevous Retraction. Draves was a member of the band Fishtales during the early ‘90s, but later moved on to the recording business; since 1994, he has operated Ottawa’s Little Bullhorn Productions and worked with the likes of the Wooden Stars, Julie Doiron, Gentlemen Reg, and Kathleen Edwards. Terry, who is arguably the busiest man in Ottawa’s indie rock circles, divides his time between Camp Radio, The Fucking Machines, Flecton & the Dreamcatchers, the Banditas, and Andrew Vincent & the Pirates.
This highly-anticipated 180 gram vinyl record was released on May 23, 2006 in a gorgeous gatefold sleeve with an included CD. (The vinyl is limited to 350 numbered copies!) As Kelp’s first-ever LP release, it is not only visually stunning but also packs an impressive aural punch – it is rife with catchy riffs, sing-along melodies, and witty wordplay. Camp Radio is a band that gets right down to business, and our ears are reaping the rewards.
