*NO SOUND CLIPS* Telex - This Is Telex [Ltd. Colour Vinyl Gatefold 2xLP]LABEL: Mute
‘This Is Telex’ is a brand-new compilation collecting 14 tracks from the innovative Belgium trio, covering their career from formation in 1978 up to the final album in 2006.
This compilation includes the hit single ‘Moskow Diskow’ as well as their Eurovision Song Contest entry, aptly called ‘Euro-vision’.
There are also two wonderful and previously unreleased tracks unearthed from the Telex archive, a cover of The Beatles’ ‘Dear Prudence’ and a reinterpretation of a Sonny & Cher track called ‘The Beat Goes On/Off’.
All the tracks were newly mixed and remastered from the original tapes by band members Dan Lacksman and Michel Moers, keeping all the tracks in the spirit of the originals but adding a freshness to them.
This compilation sets the way for a comprehensive reissue campaign of the entire Telex catalogue.
