Clan of Xymox in Bucharest, Control Club, Oct 7, 2010, Viva Music Review and Photos

At the end of the section “Biography” on their official website one can read:

“Ronny Moorings is Clan Of Xymox”.

And I can confirm that Clan of Xymox is Ronny after seeing CoX live at Control Club in Bucharest last night! He has a deep, caressing voice that you never forget and an excellent, somehow ethereal stage presence, with a slight punk twist to it. I admire artists who keep their cool as the concert goes on, and don’t get overexcited once the audience gets more enthusiastic. I had the feeling the gracious smiles Ronny was displaying and the non-pretentious “It’s good to be in Romania” were a sign of admiration and comfort from a very professional artist. Ronny reminded me of Dave Gahan, first because of the music and second because of the very intense gaze at the public, at everyone and at no one at the same time. Cool and sweet, sound like Killing Joke, Voltaire, Bauhaus, Depeche Mode, Sisters of Mercy and New Order, Clan of Xymox was another well articulated and welcome concert in Bucharest.

The current lineup of Clan of Xymox, now based in Leipzig, Germany, consists of Ronny Moorings – produces, writes, records all music & lyrics. Live members: Ronny Moorings sticks live to guitar & vocals, Mojca on bass, Mario Usai on guitar & Yvonne de Ray on keyboards.

Since 1985, Clan of Xymox have released 9 albums and 14 singles and EP’ and a live album.
