Through a short career of two 45s and one full-length released on Absolutely Kosher, Telegraph Melts managed to make music that was inventive and complex. Instrumentation consisted of amplified cello, electric guitar, and percussion, a strange lineup that provided a welcome change of pace to the post-rock scene. The Arlington, VA, band formed in late 1997 and broke up in May of 2000. Since the split, guitarist Bob Massey has gone on to join the Gena Rowlands Band while cellist Amy Domingues plays with Jenny Toomey. Percussionist Devin Ocampo now keeps time for the exceptional D.C. band, Faraquet.
