Cam Merton (Hidden Shoal Recordings)
SPB: What is your go-to karaoke song?
Merton: My initial impulse is to put on something from Harold Budd and Brian Eno’s Ambient 2/Plateaux of Mirror and hum along but apparently that’s against the strict rule set of karaoke. Failing that I have to find something in my very limited range so if the karaoke bar/machine had any spectre of taste I’d head straight to Psychedelic Fur’s “Sister Europe.” Richard Butler is one of the handful of people I would love to have guest vocal on a label release or two. Mind you if he ever heard me sing “Sister Europe” that may well end that opportunity in a matter of verses!
