    ***REDUCED PRICE DUE TO SLEEVE DAMAGE, RECORD IS SEALED AND IN MINT CONDITION***

    Thanks to their links with the celebrated 4AD label, goth-edged new wave outfit Clan of Xymox were one of the only Dutch bands to record a session for John Peel's influential Radio 1 show. That session took place in 1985, following the release of their cult debut LP, and saw them perform a mixture of familiar favourites and then brand-new cuts. Here that session makes it onto vinyl for the first-time courtesy of Dark Entries (it was previously released on CD by BBC offshoot Strange Fruit in the early 2000s). It offers a neat introduction to the band's distinctive, trademark sound, with highlights including a stellar version of new wave club classic 'Stranger', the more Goth-rock influenced shimmer of 'Seventh Time', the rubbery, drum machine -driven brilliance of 'Agonised By Love' and atmospheric closing cut 'Mesmerised'.
