'Needles In The Camel's Eye'

Telegram's brand of psychotic artrock has turned them into one of London's finest live acts, capable of seething and writhing their way around the capital's seedy venue circuit with no small hint of glamour.

New single 'Aeons' is due to be released on July 10th via the band's own Gram Gram Records imprint. A fine return, it finds Telegram somehow managing to bottle the lightning - to get their vital, virile live show down on record.

On the flip, fans can find Telegram's re-working of 'Needles In The Camel's Eye'. A piece of oddball glam snot from Brian Eno in his 'Here Come The Warm Jets' phase, it's a faithful but raucous rendering which salutes the artful strut of the original while adding their own preening gaze.

Frontman Matt says: "Eno once described 'Needles In The Camel's Eye' as "an instrumental with singing on it" and you can't argue with that! Nor can we deny this be a favorite of ours. we played it so much from the record that I think we inevitably got bored of hearing it like that, so we started playing it live instead".
