The Joseph Coker Podcast, run by local musician, comedian, and kids’ jiu jitsu instructor Joseph Coker, announced yesterday that the show would stream the 2004 EP by post-punk rock band Telegram, for which Eric Brantley played guitar.

“Last week, a lovable personality was taken from our community here in Charleston,” Coker said in a post. “I never knew him personally, but the loss of Eric Brantley has left a bruise on the hearts of so many people I love. Eric was many things, but music was one of his passions. In his honor, I am posting an EP he put out back in 2004 with his band Telegram in its entirety.”

Hundreds gathered at Riverfront park yesterday to remember and toast the musician, and Coker requests that listeners donate to a fund that’s been set up for Brantley’s memorial costs. Click here to donate.

The album includes the tracks “Total Electricity,” “Cold War Lamp,” “Magic,” “Halo,” and “Three with One Match.” You can listen to Telegram’s entire record here
