Emerging from the same psychedelic guitar scene of the early 1990’sthat yielded Spacemen 3 and My Bloody Valentine, The Telescopes have always deen dedicated to the physical force of music played at high volume. Their early records showed their deft ability as songwriters, albeit shrouded in noise and feedback. In recent years they have also employed an abstract route, releasing albums of tape noise and their most recent single which is an almost ambient cover of Nick Drake’s Black Eyed Dog.
The Brockley Guitar Circle are a 7 piece guitar group playing largely improvised, generative music. They are influenced by Steve Reich, Terry Riley and Glenn Branca among others and aim to make music that is interesting, at times challenging and that sounds nice.
