The early 80's is now a quarter of a century ago! Whilst there have been many 80's compilations we feel now is a good time to release an `edgier', cooler tracklisting highlighting some of the artists and tracks that may not be as familiar, but still defined the times. Many of these tracks have only previously been available on vinyl. "Great mix of eighties music that goes that little bit deeper then the usual eighties collection. A mix of classic eighties and the obscure. I would strongly recommend this to anyone who wants to relive that eighties feeling".

Extensive souvenir of the 2016 and 2017 reunion tour by Les Insus, aka Jean-Louis Aubert (guitar, vocals), Louis Bertignac (guitar, vocals) and Richard Kolinka (drums), with bass player Aleksander Angelov standing in for original member Corine Marienneau. Had she been there, the band simply would've been called Téléphone, but there's still a lot of bad blood between her and the rest of the band. The others had the good grace not to use the original band name to mark her absence. The first two discs feature a full show recorded at the L'AccorHotels Arena in Paris, which captures the atmosphere of the tour very well, while disc 3 was recorded at the Trabendo club and features many lesser known deep cuts and rarities.
