Telex: Raised By Snakes



Post-disco Belgian synth act Telex were one of the most innovative EDM bands of the late 70s/early 80s, prefiguring house and techno by a good half decade with their humor infused, four to the floor feel good anthems like "Moskow Diskow", "Soul Waves", "Brainwash", and "Euro-Vision". "Raised By Snakes", from 1984's "Wonderful World", is characteristic of their odd lyrical sensibilities and funky grooves.

Telex were remixed in 2 albums, "I Don't Like Music: The Remixes" and "I (Still) Don't Like Music: Remixes Vol. 2", by artists like Juan Atkins, Anthony "Shake" Shakir and Carl Craig; more recently "Moskow Diskow" received a whack of new remixes in 2010.
