Telegraph

Telegraph had originally been recorded back in 1981 at The Manor studios and had been under consideration for the Architecture & Morality album.

The original inspiration for the song was culled from Andy McCluskey's strong feelings against politics and religion at the time. This theme had been watered down by the time it had been recorded for Dazzle Ships.

Telegraph was originally scheduled to be the first single from the album Dazzle Ships, but the band weren't happy with the mix and, with pressure from Virgin, opted for Genetic Engineering instead.

66 And Fading (the b-side) is actually the chords to Silent Running reversed and slowed down.
