Formed just over two years ago, the TELEGRAM line up of Matt Saunders (vocals/ guitar), Oli Paget-Moon (bass) and Jordan Cook (drums) have recently recruited new guitarist Pip Stakem to the fold. Effortlessly combining a love of Roxy, Barrett, krautrock and late proto-punk to great effect, they’ve built up an ever growing fanbase of critics and public alike with extensive touring and a clutch of fantastic and much sought after seven inch singles such as ‘Follow’, Regatta’, ‘Inside Outside; and most recently ‘Aeons’.
To coincide with the album release, TELEGRAM have announced a UK Tour in February and March. The band kick off the twenty date run with a show on the 11th of February at the Hare and Hounds in Birmingham and then finish up in London at the Moth Club in Hackney on Thursday the 3rd of March.
