Camu Tao’s first and final solo album “KING OF HEARTS” up for pre order HERE. It is being put out by defjux and fat possum records collaboratively. you can check out fat possums amazing roster HERE (they are behind such greats as the Black Keys and many many more). It drops on august 17th.
King Of Hearts is essentially a collection of demos and unfinished songs camu had created for his album. some were recorded professionally, some were not. his sickness prevented him from finishing them all. We felt that the music, even in its raw form, was beautiful and needed to be heard. Camu needs to be heard.
on that same pre order page is a FREE download for the Central Services album “FOREVER FROZEN IN TELEVISION TIME”. CS was a collaborative record between myself (el-p) and Camu Tao. It was created in late 2004, early 2005 but never released. We intended to release it in conjunction with Camus solo record, but sadly due to Camus sickness and eventual passing, everything got delayed. You dont have to pre order KING OF HEARTS to get the download, but we hope that you do.
When you pre order “KOH” you also have the option to buy an “i love camu” t-shirt. ALL proceeds from these t-shirts go directly to charity.
EVERY DIME DEF JUX MAKES FROM KING OF HEARTS GOES DIRECTLY TO THE SMITH FAMILY. we will take NO profit.
i will be in Camus home town of Columbus Ohio to host a celebration of the life of Camu and the release of KING OF HEARTS on august 16th. This event was planned in conjunction with Camus fiance and is free with a $5 suggested donation, all of which goes to the james cancer hospital which is the same hospital that helped camu during his horrible sickness. Thanks for your support of this amazing man and his music.
