Telex - Sex LP (Remastered)
Mute is excited to announce the reissue of Telex’s Sex. Out September 22nd on black vinyl.
For 1981’s Sex, the trio teamed up with Sparks, a match made in heaven given both band’s determination to make electronic pop music suffused with conceptual wit. They got along tremendously, Ron & Russell Mael staying on in Brussels far longer than they’d originally intended, and Sparks contributed to the entire album.
This is released alongside black vinyl reissues of Looking For Saint-Tropez and Neurovision following the limited edition color vinyl box set release. Wonderful World, Looney Tunes and How Do You Dance? are set for release later in the year.
The Belgian synthpop trio - Marc Moulin (1942- 2008), Lacksman and Michel Moers - launched in Brussels in 1978 and, as one of only a handful of synthpop pioneers at the time, helped bring electronic pop to the mainstream. Telex announced their retirement in 2008, following Moulin’s death, and in 2021 began a new partnership with Mute beginning with the release of This Is Telex.
