Still led by Stephen Lawrie, The Telescopes – space cadets and onetime fairly serious early-’90s contenders – are best known for their post-Valentines fuzz-pop and classic EP, 'The Pefect Needle'. Their live performances are often a total shambles by normal standards, with Lawrie staggering around wrapping audience members in his microphone lead, but a rotating cast of talented musicians, a triple-guitar line-up and an ear-splitting, thoroughly visceral wall of noise make them a must-see.
