Teleman + Gentlemen @ Islington Assembly Halls

Interesting sound from the headliners, I’m more interested (as usual it seems) by the support. 

Teleman are the London four-piece that formed out of the ashes of indie band Pete and the Pirates. Their sound has been described as Robert Wyatt meets the Pet Shop Boys meets The Velvet Underground. A confusing reference maybe, but one which probably reflects the uniqueness of their sound. The band are now finalizing their debut album with Bernard Butler for release mid 2014.

Support comes from the brilliant psych rockers Gentlemen. Their track 'Gentle Duke' was recently track of the day on KEXP.
