Rezension

Zum 30 jährigen das Debutalbum der Psychedelic Noise Rocker,180-gram Transparent Purple Vinyl, im schweren Tip-On Sleeve Cover + 16-seitigem Booklet..

Weit weg vom späteren „Dream Pop“. Shoegaze, Noise Punk, Proto-Grunge, Heavy Psychedelic vermischen sich in diversen Kombinationen und Formen (von stürmisch und explosiv bis zu schleppender schwerer zähflüssiger Magma, v.a. aber roh, rabiat, wild, ungezügelt). Ungeheuer intensiv, geradezu schmerzhaft. Da stecken Einflüsse von/Anklänge an Jesus & Mary Chain, mehrfach frühen Hüsker Dü (ca. Zen Arcade) und Wipers (Youth Of America), Spacemen 3, Stooges drin. Dichte undurchdringliche brennende Gitarren-Wälle/(Space-)Stürme, phasenweise das pure lustvolle Inferno! (dvd)

Review

The Telescopes released this debut album, Taste, in 1989 on the now defunct What Goes On label. It was an unrefined bolt out of the blue. A sonic feast capable of transforming from visceral to tranquil in a matter of seconds. Even now, listening to blissful opener 'And Let Me Drift Away' as it melts into the brutal 'I Fall, She Screams' sends shivers up the spine. There's little respite for the rest of side one, 'Oil Seed Rape' thuds and groans, then 'Violence' follows suit. All scratchy guitars that sound as if they were designed primarily to bludgeon senses. 'Threadbare' then 'The Perfect Needle' - the only single taken off the album - bringing the first half to an uneasy close. The second side kicks off with 'There Is No Floor', an ode to Roky Eriksson via My Bloody Valentine's 'Feed Me With Your Kiss' that ultimately merits its mention alongside both. 'Anticipating Nowhere' is the sound of punk rock had it not jumped on the nostalgia gravy train instead, while the sinister 'Please, Before You Go' finds both Lawrie and Doran at their vocally harmonious finest. 'Suffocation' captures the ferocious demeanour of their live show while 'Silent Water' tells its own desolate tale of being buried at sea as a halo of pedal infused noise engulfs Lawrie's vocals forthwith. Culminating in 'Suicide', the traditional ending to their live set at this juncture, its continuous loop only bringing the song to a conclusion at the listener's command. Three decades have passed since its release yet 'Taste' still sounds like nothing else created before or after.
