Biography

Telex was formed as an all-electronic disco pop band in 1978 by radio DJ/jazz musician Marc Moulin, programmer/sound engineer Dan Lacksman and vocalist Michel Moers. Expressing articulate, militant views on the essential lightness of pop, the group's tongue-in-cheek championing of disco was not always well understood at the time by the ideologically-correct rock press. Nevertheless, the group's first three singles ("Twist À Saint Tropez", "Moskow Diskow" and "Rock Around The Clock") became hits in the UK and in the rest of Europe, and a number of Telex 12"s were popular in dance clubs, especially in the USA.

Telex made five albums between 1979 and 1988 : Looking For Saint Tropez, Neurovision, Sex, Wonderful World and Looney Tunes. During a nearly 20-year hiatus came a series of remix albums and compilations, culminating in the 2006 release of How Do You Dance? album, which brought together newly recorded and previously unreleased material.

During the hiatus, Marc Moulin produced many pop albums, was one of the head programmers on French-speaking Belgian national radio, and was an author and playwright. He died of cancer on September 26, 2008. Dan Lacksman runs Synsound, a successful studio complex in Brussels. Michel Moers lives in Provence, France, and is a video director and professional and artistic photographer.
