Clan Of Xymox - A Day (UK Import 12 Inch / 1985)

01 A Day (Re-Mix) 9:12
02 Stranger (Re-Mix) 5:23

Imagine my surprise in reviewing my blog posts to find NO Clan Of Xymox! A quick search across the other blogs I follow netted me very little in the way of C.O.X, but a good bit of the late 80's, early 90's Xymox output. That's fine because I love that time frame of their music as well. This 12 inch though, this started my love of the 4.A.D. label and all the bands therein! Much of my 4 A.D. influence goes back to my days at MIAD (Milwaukee Institute of Art & Design) and late night listening to the local college radio station 91.7 WMSE (Milwaukee School of Engineering). The Fall of 1986 forever changed me.

Enough with me reminiscing about the past. Today's post is just the straight up 12 inch from Clan Of Xymox. I'm happy to say that I own this and haven't sold it! All the art was neatly scanned for you and the tracks sound impressive! Enjoy! (Happy 4th Of July / Independence Day to my U.S. followers!)

    LOOOOVE this song, actually both songs. This piece of vinyl never left my crate and I usually played both sides!

    One of your best shares yet!

    Happy 4th to you!

    1. Thanks F.H.! I wanted more singles released from this first LP and Medusa! I think they would have sold well, not to mention the collectible fashion of it given the 4AD label and all the 23 Envelope art! Thanks again!

      Thank you at "Anonymous" above ... I think I have a pretty complete Xymox collection, as I'm sure RF does too, but their cover album is soo good, I wish they would put out another one. You've gotta love it when bands actually make cover versions sound like their own (like Metallica)!
