The Telescopes were formed in 1987 by Stephen Lawrie and could best be described as a noise/space rock band - The Jesus and Mary Chain, My Bloody Valentine and Spacemen 3 being influences and contemporaries. Their debut release was a split flexi disc with Loop on the Cheree label in 1988. There followed their debut single, "Kick the Wall", and "7th# Disaster" also on Cheree Records. They moved to What Goes On Records and released their debut LP, "Taste" and "The Perfect Needle" single which is perhaps their most famous song.
