Three young Belgian musicians - Marc Moulin, Dans Lackman and Michel Moers– created a new form of music by using clever little, playful melodies true synthscapes and electronic sound waves in 1979. The legendary band TELEX was born.

Their debut album Looking For Saint-Tropez is a pop-historical album, gaining international attention in it's fun approach to the popular new wave of that time.   

The band mixed aesthetics of disco, punk and experimental electronic music, and released a stripped-down synthesized cover version of "Twist à St. Tropez" by Les Chats Sauvages. Followed by an ultra-slow cover of "Rock Around the Clock", a relaxed and dispassionate version of Plastic Bertrand's punk song "Ça Plane Pour Moi", and a mechanical cover of "Dance to the Music", originally by Sly Stone.

The worldwide hit single "Moskow Diskow" created the breakthrough for the band.
