Teleman played at Queens Social Club in Sheffield on 21st October with support from Katie Pham and The Moonbathers.
Katie Pham & The Moonbathers got proceedings underway at Queens Social with a short but sweet set of surf-rock ish songs, with Katie being very funny on stage, making remarks about ‘everyone looking like they are going to be shot’ thanks to the laser glitterball.
The social club was filled to the brim by the time Teleman took to the stage, who started off their set with last year’s one off single ‘Strange Combinations.’ Having loved their second album ‘Brilliant Sanity as well as their debut ‘Breakfast’, I was very excited to see what they would be like live, and I wasn’t disappointed.
Playing an extremely tight show, the band performed tracks from both of their albums, with almost every track being received like it was their biggest hit, and when Dusseldorf, which arguably is one of the tracks of the year was played, the crowd reacted suitably.
A highlight of the show for me was ‘Not In Control’; often when bands play a song that has potential to turn into a ‘jam’ they can drag it out for what seems like ages until the crowd gets bored, but that wasn’t the case here.
Finishing with an encore of ‘Christina’ and ‘Glory Hallelujah’, Teleman proved themselves to be a great live band as well as being brilliant on record.
Teleman are still on tour, with dates at Portsmouth, London, Wolverhampton, Cardiff, Belfast, Dublin and Hull still remaining. For more info and tickets go here: http://www.telemanmusic.com/
