Formed just over two years ago, the Telegram line up of Matt Saunders (vocals/ guitar), Oli Paget-Moon (bass) and Jordan Cook (drums) have recently recruited new guitarist Pip Stakem to the fold.
Effortlessly combining a love of Roxy Music, Syd Barrett, krautrock and late proto-punk to great effect, they’ve built up an ever growing fanbase of critics and public alike with extensive touring, including playing Sub-Sonic Live with Temples and The Merrylees for us back in 2014, check out their live performances of singles 'Aeons' and 'Regatta' (which both feature on the album) below.
