THEE TELEPATHS Psych-driven fuzz & beat four-piece from Kettering with an in-the-red sound that owes a clear debt to the metallic proto-punk rock of The Stooges & The MC5, the '80s drone-fuzz of Loop & Spacemen 3, the wonky electronics of The Silver Apples & Suicide, the mad science of Krautrock and the warped heavy psychedelia of Black Sabbath.
