So, I was a big fan of Clan of Xymox as a teenager. I always knew they were a Dutch band, but I discovered only recently that they were from Nijmegen Smile

Does anybody know if some of their tunes have been ported to MSX, of if they had any influence on the MSX scene at the time ?

I'm just listening to one of their first album ("Medusa") right now, is still sounds great Running Naked in a Field of Flowers

Can't help but I love those typical electronic sounds from 80's, I wonder why? LOL!

Clan of Xymox was definitively dark / gothic but also kind of pop & dance music, so I can play it in the living room with my wife enjoying it too Smile

Must say I'm a bit stuck in he 80's too from a musical point of view, same as for games !

The 80's were golden...platinum in terms of being the age were games really became popular among the general public, not only nerds. It was the starting point of most electronic music.

The 4AD label is a synonym of alternative bands with quality music. have you heard the albums of This Mortal Coil collective project?

I loved This Mortail Coil. The Coctain Twins are so familar to me, they could be my neighboors. Heard all three albums one week ago and have been twenty again for one evening.

Yeah, bought myself lots of ablums from the 4AD label at the time. All Dead Can Dance & Pixies of course, and also "Treasure" from the Cocteau Twins (which is playable in a family audience), but no Mortal Coil - time to fix this !
