Xymox

Electronic goth group Clan of Xymox shaped in Nijmegen, Netherlands in 1981, crafting an audio that recalled Depeche Setting, New Purchase, and Sisters of Mercy. The initial lineup included Ronny Moorings (guitars, vocals), Pieter Nooten (tips), Frank Weyzig (electric guitar, tips), and Anka Wolbert (bass, vocals) on the 1983 debut EP Following Pleasures. Originally agreed upon to the important British isles indie 4AD, Clan of Xymox’s mixture of icy synthesizers, hard dance beats, and dramatic vocals seduced interest in its first stages, including a self-titled 1985 debut LP and sophomore follow-up Medusa. After departing from 4AD, Moorings — today the band’s lone member — transformed the band’s public name to merely Xymox and agreed upon to Polydor. He continuing releasing albums to some faithful cult market, you start with 1989’s Twist of Shadows. Plus a spinning ensemble of ever-changing bandmembers, Moorings released a string of albums — taking advantage of the past due-’90s industrial increase and electronica stages — eventually regressing back to the Clan of Xymox moniker in 1997. Those past due-’90s releases had been reissued in 2006 and 2007 over the Gravitator label, with Clan of Xymox’s 15th studio room effort, Issues of Brain, Body and Spirit, showing up in 2014.
