A great introduction to the work of Telex
– the very groovy Euro pop group started by keyboardist Marc Moulin after his early work in Placebo! The sound here is very different than that group – very catchy, very poppy, and upbeat with a ear towards helping the continental scene live past the years of disco – so much so that the electronic vibe of the set is also arguably a very strong influence on UK and Japanese electronic pop in years to come! Telex
were always smarter than most, and had a great sense of humor and a way of sneaking politics into catchy little songs – as you'll hear on titles that include "Beautiful Li(f)e", "The Number One Song In Heaven", "The Beat Goes On/
Off", "Moskow Diskow", "Eurovision", "Exercise Is Good For You", and "L'Amour Toujours".
