Biography

Since their formation in their native Holland their music has been constantly changing, always challenging and often quite breathtaking. Some of us have always been of the opinion that XYMOX are something special. A band fired by electronic music but determined, always, to make something that is very much their own. They are unique.

First there was Clan of Xymox, formed in Amsterdam but ... Read more in Amazon's Clan of Xymox Store

Format:Audio CD
Kindred Spirits assembles eleven cover versions, entirely played, sung and recorded by Ronny Moorings. And what a selection it is: "Blue Monday" by NEW ORDER, "Question Of Time" by DEPECHE MODE, "Decades" by JOY DIVISION, "A Forest" by THE CURE or "Alice" by THE SISTERS OF MERCY may be songs one would have expected on Ronny Mooring's perennial playlist anyway; the manner in which he reawakens these tracks to a new CLAN OF XYMOX life, however, astounds and enthuses more than was deemed possible. Warm, organic, somewhere between wavy Electro and fog-clouded Goth Rock... these honorary tributes show a completely new side of CLAN OF XYMOX - and revive immortal classics as a pleasant side effect. More surprising is a song like RADIOHEAD's "Creep" that even after the first listen sounds like a well-known CLAN OF XYMOX track and was most skillfully interpreted. Pieces from DAVID BOWIE ("Heroes", of course), SHOCKING BLUE, DEPARTMENT S, NINE INCH NAILS as well as SIOUXSIE AND THE BANSHEES (sung by Mojca Zugna) complete an extraordinary release brimful with emotion and nostalgia.

5.0 out of 5 stars ...and old friends. November 26, 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
COX - Kindred Spirits

...and old friends. I've been listening to COX since the mid-eighties. They were one of the first gothic bands I really got into, I have every one of their albums, live albums, DVDs, etc. Yes... I'm a fan.

I caught wind of Clan of Xymox's new album "Kindred Spirits" on, of all places, Ronny Moorings Facebook page. Read that, and was like "whaaaaaat? Cover tunes???"

And that's what this album is. In the liner notes, Ronny explains that this is a collection of the songs that have entertained and musically guided him throughout his life and career. The collection is varied, but focused. Varied, when you consider the opening tune...

1. Venus, originally done in 1969 by the Dutch band Shocking Blue (we Americans probably only know the version by Bananarama) caught me off-guard as I was mainly familiar with the Bananarama version, having only heard the original maybe one time in searching for it after hearing the Bananarama version (and the Bananarama version WAY too many times). I little web-searching led me back to the original, and I have to say it wouldn't have been so unexpected coming from COX if I'd remembered the Shocking Blue version. Very cool song, in it's own right.

2. Alice... made popular by Sisters of Mercy back in 1982... is a wonderful remake. Keeps true to the spirit of the Sisters version, but... maybe goes a little darker? Bordering on spooky... but danceable.

3. Department 5's "Is Vic There" is completely at home on this album. Ronny Mooring's Dutch-scented lyrics give this song the aura that it deserves. Again, a very danceable EBM song, you don't want to listen to it in the car if you're not ready to get out and dance at the next red-light.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good album November 12, 2012
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
Not my favorite Xymox album, but then again I didn't even read about it being a covers album. I just saw new Xymox and purchased LoL.

I think Ronny did a good job on most of the covers giving them the Xymox touch.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Nod to the Past November 5, 2012
By Mike
Format:Audio CD
This band has had a wonderful career in the underground. They spent a moment in the mainstream for a brief period during the early 80's and then went back underground where their fan base truly loves and appreciates them.

On their latest release, our illustrious band tackles some of the classic goth rock underground hits of yore and gives it the Clan of Xymox twist and spin. As an avid fan of this band from the outset, if a CD has their name on it, I'll get it without having heard one note. Imagine my surprise when I saw that the tracks were those made famous by other bands. Undaunted, I put this baby in the player and can say that they made these songs truly their own. The formative sound of the songs that made them hits are still there but Clan of Xymox gave them a bit of an electronic spin that is at once timely, relevant and quite organic in spite of the electronic work. Ronny and company have made yet another CD that will be a classic along with their long list of releases to date. Hopefully some of the younger fans coming along will appreciate the depth the band has gone to in order to provide quality music worthy of the purchase price.

5.0 out of 5 stars Kindred Spirits - An Amazingly Beautiful Album October 27, 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
After waiting for months with bated breath and anticipation - the CD finally arrived this afternoon. Once again, the brilliant poet and artist, that is Ronny Moorings, produced another beautiful piece of work. There is not one song on this album that failed to make me smile, love and appreciate as he more than did each cover of the original pieces their ultimate justice. The album is a compilation of lovely interpretations and modern versions of songs by some his favorite fellow artists that he has gained inspiration from over the years - hence the title of the album - "Kindred Spirits". I loved his version of "Heroes" even more than the first rendition that he did of it several years ago. Ronny's take on Trent Reznor's "Something I Can Never Have" was delightfully haunting and it literally gave me chills. I found "A Forest" to be completely mesmerizing - Robert will be most pleased with it indeed. The CD covers all moods: from gothic/melodically dreamy - to heavy dark dance beats. I will be recommending this album to all of my friends!!!

Many Thanks Ronny,
Angelique
