A retrospective of the The Telescopes has come out. Well it's more a comp of singles they did over a 3 year period. That's not a retrospective at all. It's a singles comp. Well a 3 year singles comp. Fuck I'm confused. It covers 1989 to 1991... basically from the Perfect Needle to Flying. Hearing this again made me realize how shit a lot of music is these days. Some of the tracks later on (the latter Creation period) aren't quite as good but I defy anyone to listen to the Perfect Needle and not think it's a work of genius. I've still got the goose pimples in my hand. There's tracks like Sadness Pale which sound like a B side from MBV's You made me Realise EP. Later on it gets less fuzzy and more commercial and poppy. There's some tunes on there... I still like Flying. Basically anyone who was into that whole Spacemen 3, My Bloody Valentine thing should check this out cos it documents a band who were largely ignored which is a shame cos they made some great tunes. They still are in fact though it's vastly different these days with all the widdly darkness that they're doing. 'The Singles 1989-1991' is CD only on the Mind Expansion label. Smashing!!
