INFO > Dutch darkwave pioneers Clan Of Xymox formed in 1983 (the group went by Xymox in the beginning, and between 1987 and 1997). The band issued two albums and two singles via 4AD Records before signing with PolyGram sublabel Wing Records in 1988. This German CD single features dance mixes of “Imagination” and “Blind Hearts”; both tracks appear on the groups’s third LP, 1989’s “Twist Of Shadows” (although the superior, original version of “Blind Hearts” features on Xymox’s final EP for 4AD). B-side “Senses Coalesce” is exclusive to the release.
