Urban Myth is proud to announce digital reissues of O Glee and Mr. Fedora, two classic albums by celebrated Canadian songwriter/poet Jason Camlot.
Recorded in San Francisco and Montreal, and originally issued on cassette by Camlot’s own Tonguespoon Music, O Glee (1994) and Mr. Fedora (1995) are two prime examples of Camlot’s formidable songwriting and intense, compelling solo performance.
Jason will be reading from his new book of poetry The Debaucher (Insomniac Press) and performing songs old and new (accompanied by Kenny Smilovitch) at Pages bookstore/café in Montréal this Thursday, August 7th at 8pm.
Pages: 3255 rue Saint-Jacques at Atwater, Montréal.
