Telescopes’ video for Flying from “Highr ‘N’ Higher” (or the self-titled lp) on Creation Records, 1992.
Dream pop cult icons the Telescopes formed in Burton-upon-Trent, England, in 1986.
The Telescopes began as a run-of-the-mill British shoegazer band fully under the thrall of noise and My Bloody Valentine. Perhaps a little angrier than most of that ilk but pretty unmemorable. At some point however they discovered subtlety and songcraft. They traded in most of their noise pedals for some that make the guitars go all spacey and phased-out.
