The Telescopes (Official)
Founded in 1987 by Stephen Lawrie. The Telescopes have been mining a unique anti-myopian seam of highly influential experimental, drone, noise, dream & psych for over 20 years.
“The Telescopes have resurfaced and I am amazed and glad they are still practicing their mysterious art” (John Peel)
LSD and the Search for God
LSD and the Search for God hit the Northern California coast in 2005––seemingly from another place and time––dosing audiences with hypnotic performances built upon swirling guitars, otherworldly drones, fuzzed-out pop melodies, and dreamy male/female vocal harmonies. As reviews of shows drew comparisons to My Bloody
Valentine, Slowdive, Yo La Tengo, Spacemen 3, and Sonic Youth, the band quickly developed a must-see reputation within San Francisco’s underground psychedelic music community.
