TELEMAN at The Fleece Thu 25 April 2019 from 7.30pm

DHP Presents :


Doors 7:30pm. Curfew 11pm

Rising from the ashes of London indie rockers Pete & the Pirates, Teleman traded that band's brash style for a subtler and wider-ranging approach. The group embraced its newfound freedom with the meandering pop of 2014's Breakfast and split the difference between tightly wound rock and electronic experiments on 2016's Brilliant Sanity and 2018's Family of Aliens. On each of their releases, Teleman's idiosyncratic charm and willingness to surprise shines through.
Shortly after Pete & the Pirates disbanded in 2012, vocalist/guitarist Thomas Sanders, his keyboardist brother Jonny, and bassist Pete Cattermoul formed Teleman, adding drummer Hiro Amamiya to complete the lineup. The band's demos revealed a wry, melodic take on guitar pop that nodded to legends like the Beach Boys and contemporaries such as Django Django, and they soon signed to Moshi Moshi Records. Teleman made their debut with "Christina," which was released as part of the label's Singles Club in 2013. The band's Bernard Butler-produced first album, Breakfast, arrived in 2014.

Fünf For their follow-up, Teleman worked with producer Dan Carey, and honed their songwriting as well as their arsenal of synths, focusing on the Mellotron, the Roland Jupiter, and the Korg Trident. The results were the lively Brilliant Sanity, which arrived in 2016. Teleman went further in an electronic direction with the following year's Fünf EP, which found them collaborating with a different producer (Timothy J. Fairplay, Ghost Culture, Bullion, Boxed In, and Moscoman) on each of its five tracks. For their third full-length, Family of Aliens, Teleman incorporated some of these dance leanings along with a more exploratory and collaborative approach to songwriting. Upon its September 2018 release, Family of Aliens debuted at number 40 on the U.K. albums chart, marking the band's highest placement on the chart to date.

The Fleece, 12 St Thomas St, Bristol, BS1 6JJ.

Unless otherwise stated this is an all ages venue (under 16s must be accompanied by a adult)

Since The Blue Aeroplanes acquired The Fleece in May 2010 it has been rescued from eternal damnation as a "once great" and turned into "one of the best venues in the UK"

Relaxed atmosphere, a massive bar that is never more than 2 deep and an outside smoking/drinking/chatting area. Towns with huge arenas and stadiums would probably kill to have a venue like the Fleece in their midst.

There was a time when we'd have said the days of seeing a big band in such a small venue are gone but the hard work put in by the Aeroplanes coupled with the prestige that surrounds The Fleece means that those days are well and truly back.

A massive refurbishment at the start of 2013 means the venue can now claim to have "luxurious" toilets (at least in live music venue terms!)

With the demolition of the main entrance lobby and the installation of larger toilets the capacity has now increased from 330 to 450.
Despite being a national touring circuit venue, The Fleece regularly books local bands. If you'd like a gig email for more details.
