Interview with Clan Of Xymox: ‘For Me A Lot Of These Memories Are Finished Stories Without A Soundtrack’

Set up in 1983 Clan Of Xymox aren’t just pioneers from the dark/cold-wave scene, but also a band that never stopped composing new music. Clan Of Xymox never stopped releasing great music even after more than thirty years of involvement. Ronny Moorings already took my by surprise releasing the dark and catchy “Days Of Black” in 2017 and he this year strikes back releasing “Spider On The Wall”. The singles taken from this album became instant hits, revealing a new catchy approach mixed with darkness and melancholia. The album has been released on Trisol (Germany/Europe) and Metropolis (USA). I talked about this newest opus with front man Ronny Moorings.   (Picture credits  by Edmund Messerschmidt / Interview courtesy by Inferno Sound Diaries) Q: Your new album “Spider On The Wall” has been released 35 years after your self-titled debut full length “Clan Of Xymox”! What do you still recognize from this early production in the new album? Ronny: Wow, that sounds like a long time ago when you read it in years, but it feels somehow much closer. The instrumentation choices haven’t changed that much regarding the use of synths, keyboards, drum programming and including more live instruments like guitar […]

Brian Eno launches first collection of music from film – for David Lynch, Michelangelo Antonioni, Michael Mann, Peter Jackson, Derek Jarman, Danny Boyle

(Photo by Cecily Eno ) “Film Music 1976 – 2020” is a brand new Brian Eno release out on double vinyl / CD and download on November 13th in the UK and followed by a US release on January 22nd. “Film Music 1976 – 2020” is the first ever collection of music from his film and television soundtrack oeuvre. Spanning five decades, this release features classic Eno compositions, lesser-known gems and seven previously unreleased tracks. Eno’s long-standing affair with film goes all the way back to 1970 with his soundtrack to Malcolm Le Grice’s short experimental film “Berlin Horse”. In 1976 he followed this with “Sebastiane” and a long forgotten Greek b-horror film, “Land Of The Minotaur” AKA “The Devil’s Men”. Early classic Eno film moments include “Prophecy Theme” from David Lynch’s “Dune”, “From The Beginning” from Dario Argento’s “Opera”, “Force Marker” and “Late Evening In Jersey” from Michael Mann’s “Heat”, “Under” from Ralph Bakshi’s “Cool World” and his cover of William Bell’s soul classic, “You Don’t Miss Your Water”, in Jonathan Demme’s “Married to The Mob”. His 1978 studio album, “Music For Films” was a loose compilation of material recorded between 1975 – 1978. It was intended as a […]

Gareth Jones interview: ‘Go the whole journey with me and listen to the LP’

(Interview by János Janurik) About a year ago, I had the honour to ask Gareth Jones about his studio work on Erasure’s legendary “Wild!” album. Back then he mentioned his upcoming solo electronic music project. The long wait is finally over. The studio magician’s long-awaited debut album will be released on the 18th September. On that occasion, I asked him my questions again. SL: In our last conversation last year, you summarized your memories of working on Erasure’s “Wild!” album. The Erasure guys have just released their new album “The Neon”. At the online launch party they also mentioned your name concerning a new remix to “Nerves Of Steel”. Could you please tell us a few words about this project? GJ: Andy had an idea for an approach to a remix, and I was delighted to help him realise that idea. It is a mix full of respect. It’s an homage in fact. I love Andy and Vince. It’s family.  It’s always amazing to work with them, so I jumped at the chance to collaborate on this remix.  I also created a second ElectroGenetic remix, which is a different kind of thing. Darker perhaps.  SL: When we run back over […]
