Clan of Xymox is the debut studio album by Dutch dark wave band Clan of Xymox, released 1 July 1985 by 4AD. The album was produced by 4AD co-founder Ivo Watts-Russell and recorded at Palladium Studios in Edinburgh. The remixes included on the album ("A Day" and "Stranger") were mixed and produced by John Fryer at Blackwing Studios in London

Clan Of Xymox were now not only inhabiting the arthouse but filling dance floors in the more discerning clubs. October 1988 saw the band and 4-AD part company. Encouraged by label boss Ivo they signed to Wing, a left of centre subsidiary of media monolith PolyGram. The band shortened their name to Xymox and gave the world 1989's "Twist of Shadows" album, their debut for Wing. It was in many ways a bold record and it showed that being signed to a major concern wasn't going to stifle a natural sense of musical adventure. Clan Of Xymox continues their shows in 2010. May 20, 2011, on Ronny Moorings’ birthday, the 13th studio album "Darkest Hour" was released. So far it reached no. 3 in the DAC charts in Germany and still is climbing.

Clan of Xymox, also known as simply Xymox, are a Dutch rock band formed in 1981. Clan of Xymox featured a trio of songwriters - Ronny Moorings, Anka Wolbert, and Pieter Nooten - and gained success in the 1980s, releasing their first two albums on 4AD, before releasing their third and fourth albums on Wing Records and scoring a hit single in the United States. Their 1980s releases included synthpop/electronic dance music

Clan of Xymox (also known as Xymox) blend an eclectic and vibrant mix of darkwave, synthpop, and gothic rock. From the Netherlands, Xymox was established in 1983 in Nijmegen by frontman Ronny Moorings and then live-in Anke Wolbert. Their first EP, "Subsequent Pleasures" added Pieter Nooten afterwards on keyboards and left a mark on an emerging Euro-wave market.

A stone classic, start to finish, and beautifully recorded. Pieter, Anka, and Ronny created two of 4AD's most enduring albums: this and its follow up, Medusa - not counting Pieter's equally wonderful Sleeps With The Fishes. Here on their self-titled debut, Xymox establishes a layered, propulsive, romantic sound - darker than New Order, more poetic than Depeche Mode, almost as despairing as The Cure. They hit a very sweet spot, and each song is unique and memorable. This is an essential album that can be played again and again. Xymox forever.
