Yes I have that one by Silicon Teens - - they ARE similar lps as they both are a synth act doing a lot of covers of 'oldies', with some oddball originals thrown in. Silicon Teens was actually a one-man act, the founder the founder of the Mute label, if I

Another similar band was The Flying Lizards... lots of quirky electronic covers of old songs.

Nash The Slash also put out an

I had Telex's "Looking for St tropez", "Sex", and "Neurovision" lps years ago and lost them in a breakup with a girlfriend. I've been able to replace Neurovision (sealed copy off of ebay for $11US) but the other 2 are proving very difficult to find.
