Could you by the way remind us of the meaning of your band name ?
Clan" means a close knit group united by a common interest or common
characteristics and Xymox is the name I wanted to give myself as a Pseudonym
way back in the early eighties, but later I decided just to use my own
name. I liked Xymox so it stayed. Xymox is a bastardized version of the
word Zymotic, Hence, Clan of Xymox
Why did you change at times the LIVE line up or a band member?
I recommend reading our tour page regularly because we update this site all the time. The tour dates listed are the dates confirmed. If your country is not listed it simply means that so far nothing is booked there. Don't despair though because we book shows all the time. It depends on your local promoter if we play in your town or not , so you can always ask your favourite venue to book us. All contacts for that are on our home page.
Words of General Advice in the case you cannot find an album in your local record store ?
I prefer myself buying direct from the i tunes store or on line from Infrarot.de , amazon.com / de/co.uk or what Clan of Xymox is concerned I would suggest directly ordering from them because it is cheaper.
lot of music stores have limited space and stock up most of the time very
commercial music, it does not mean they cannot get a record you want.
Are you against downloading?
No , as long as it is from a legal site like i/Tunes or similar. For the average band it takes 2 to 3 years to write and record music and that time needs to be compensated. If an artist does not get income from their work I guess most will look (have to) for something else to do , simple as that. So if you cherish your artist then you support them by buying their album, as simple as that. Also you would not get spyware on your computer if you download from say i tunes
On which record label Clan of Xymox now?
We have our own Label and Publishing company called simply Xymox Control
and license all our material through Trisol in Europe and
Metropolis Records in the USA and other territories.
How come Wikipedia in English delivers such a poor version of your history?
The page is for years in possesion of a hostile editor who does not allow any changes. He seems to have a morbid pleasure to distort the history of the band and keep the last 20 years practically out of the picture.
I do not have any desire to even attempt to alter this because I would have to give up my normal life in order to get to know all the codes involved editing this page on Wiki. It shows how unreliable a page can be when it falls into the wrong hands. Enough said We provide a way more extensive bio and on Facebook you get up to date info. If there are any questions you can always ask there.
