Telescopes, The - Taste 12"
The Midlands based five piece ‘The Telescopes’ are one of the forgotten treasures of the British Indie scene of the late 80s and early 90s. This expanded re-release of their debut album “Taste” is a timely reminder of their talents and relevance. The twelve tracks of the original album are augmented by the inclusion of a four track live bootleg “Trademark of Quality” reprising three of the original album tracks plus the hitherto unheard “Sadness Pale”. Originally released in 1989 “Taste” opens with the ethereal “And Let Me Drift Away” featuring acoustic guitar, violin and French horn. It is the calm before the storm to come. The album then explodes into “I Fall, She Screams” and from then on the sonic assault never lets up.
