The Perfect Needle
The Telescopes Lyrics


Cerise, release and so much more
With perfect needle, hits the floor
I will be breathing will you?
Velvet warms all over here
Velvet warms all over here
Lay down in painless falling now

And it hurts too much to be where you are
Hurts too much to be where you are
I've got the perfect needle
I've got the perfect needle
For you

Surrender down comes everything
Breathes no more and falls to sleep
Blind and helpless sick and dead

Treasure waits complete and there
With scattered needles everywhere
Thorn at the end of every road
Thorn at the end of every road

Breathes no more and falls to sleep
Blind and helpless sick and dead

Treasure waits complete and there
With scattered needles everywhere
Thorn at the end of every road
Thorn at the end of every road

the telescopes were always brillliant. great band.

I remember seeing them at the Fulham Greyhound in 1992. A very under-appreciated band. This is one of my favourite tracks.

saw them yesterday on a little scene, they deserved a bigger one

I was also there.
We were lucky to be around during 90's London. Loads of places to see decent live music for a few ยฃ.

I lost count of the number of times I listened to this song on my Walkman in 1990/1991. Saw the band in 1992 when they'd moved from shoegazing to nouveau hippy but still enjoyed seeing them.

Bought the single in London the day after the release, some 28 years ago. I stayed for free in beautiful house in Moore Street. It was crazy. I was young and broke, trying to make a living as a model. So surrounded by antiques and art, when the owner was at work, this one was on a 130 decibel repeat. Bringing back memories of a wild youth!

they are pioneers

Cosmocracy Inc.

You mean The Velvet Underground ?

Francesco Vanni

they were recording Taste in the same studio and in the same period My Bloody Valentine were recording loveless... totally pioneers
