RSD 2018 release. The Telescopes were founded in England in 1987 by chief member Stephen Lawrie and released several recordings in the late 1980s but it is in 1990, when the band signed to legendary label Creation, that they hit their stride and helped to define a decade of UK rock music. Fusing elements of psychedelia with noise-rock, and dreamy pop, The Telescopes were near the forefront of the early shoegaze scene and hugely influential on the next wave of early 1990s Brit-pop. This crucial collection complies all four of their 12" singles on Creation as well as a 1991 John Peel session and other bonus tracks. Deluxe double-LP includes double-sided poster insert; 180 gram vinyl; Limited edition (numbered).
