Paper Cameras began as a series of solo material from Michael Carothers after All the Dead Horses broke up. Four self released (and now out of print) e.p.\'s with sounds ranging from a redneck Brian Eno fronting a Guided by Husker Du-ish Devo swam in the undercurrent of the Portland\'s scene sounding off with a fondness for I.R.S. era R.E.M. but raining rivers of over driven tube amps coping a feel on The Kinks or The Troggs. Slowly by very surely co-producer Sean Flora (The Shins, The Black Keys, Yeah Yeah Yeahs) fell into place as a band member. Josh Bretton\'s reoccurring lick-y guitar was found among a host of PDX\'s finest musicians also lending their talents in the studio as well as on stage. And then in 2008 things changed. Carothers decided to hand the microphone over to an old friend in Nashville. That person was Jerry Campbell (Millionaire Magicians, Spider Virus, Hands Down Eugene) and from that collaboration began a new phase in Paper Cameras, not out of step with previous work, but far more focused; simple and brooding. Their first album of psychedelic sounds caught between Love and Rockets and The Beach Boys is \'Lost Weekend\'. There are two other e.p.\'s currently in the works. Michael Carothers is also currently in Radiant Silvergun with Chuck Westmorland (The Kingdom) and played in Spectator Pump as well as hardcore bands with Hank III.
