Clan of Xymox - The John Peel Sessions (2001)

Here's another Clan of Xymox gem. The John Peel Sessions recorded in 1985.

Xymox sounds more driven and more like an actual band than on the lush John Fryer-produced 4AD albums. Wolbert's "Seventh Time" has more of a menacing thunk and Nooten's "After the Call" is so well-written it actually benefits from the scant production. Considering the absence of a live album from this era, John Peel Sessions presents Xymox as an actual band before being This Mortal Coil-ed into the heavens. (Taken from AMG)
