8/10 Clinton Staff review, 29 May 2012

Try all I might, turning this up to 11, listening on headphones, playing it backwards, at 33rpm, 45rpm, 78rpm, I can barely hear any traces of the original Nick Drake-penned ‘Black Eyed Dog’. It starts with a low end squelchy drone which flams a bit in and out of the mix whilst distant Syd Barrett-esque glissando guitar potters away. And...yes...yes, I can just hear the murmur of whispered vocals picking out something like the melody.

On the flip we get a strange experimental noise piece with spoken word vocals and something which sounds akin to the sound of a fire at a fireworks warehouse as played on a Casio keyboard. The Telescopes really have gone completely off into the ether in recent years and good on ‘em though it begs the oft asked question, is it easier to create a slab of droney noise than to write something melodious and listenable? Answers on a postcard please.
