The lineup: Thomas Sanders (vocals, guitar), Jonny Sanders (synths) and Pete Cattermoul (bass).
Teleman are the London three-piece that formed out of the ashes of indie band Pete and the Pirates. Actually, that's putting it a bit dramatically. Nobody razed the Pirates to the ground; they were never burned. Members just upped and left – namely the Sanders boys and Cattermoul, now operating as Teleman. Something about their typography and that "Tele" prefix suggests a determination to present themselves as Kraftwerky droids, and although their press shot doesn't exactly depict them as men-machines, they do at least all look neat and clipped and "modern", what with their matching side partings and button-down collars. It's not quite the full science-nerd chic, but there is a pleasing uniformity to their appearance.
