This Is Telex collects a select bunch of fourteen recordings which span the career of Belgian trio Telex, from their formation in 1978 through to their final album in 2006, remastered and reissued together for the first time by Mute. The main draws include their hit single ‘Moscow Discow’ as well as the song they used as their entry to the Eurovision Song Contest (the aptly titled ‘Euro-vision’). It also features two previously unreleased cover tracks, in the form of ‘Dear Prudence’ by The Beatles and their take on ‘The Beat Goes On/Off’, first performed by Sonny and Cher.

Press Release

‘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.
