The Telescopes - took Shoegaze up several notches.

I first ran a track by The Telescopes on The Roundtable back in 2009. It was a track off their first ep issued in 1991. Tonight it's a return to The Telescopes, only this time it's from their third album (High'r n' High'r), issued in 1992 with two tracks, Flying and Yeah, running into each other as they did on the original album. Flying was first issued as an ep in July of 1991 and apparently entered the UK Charts shortly after.

As I said in my 2009 entry, The Telescopes have disbanded and re-grouped several times and have changed personnel over the years, but they are still together, having recently performed at the ATP (All Tomorrow's Parties) I'll Be Your Mirror Festival in London this past July.

But tonight it's a track that has always been a favorite and may hit a few familiar chords here and there with you. If not, it's a new experience worth checking out.
