"Kindred Spirits" assembles eleven cover versions, played, sung and recorded entirely by Ronny. And what a selection it is: "Blue Monday" by NEW ORDER, "Question of Time" by DEPECHE MODE, "Decades" by JOY DIVISION, "A Forest" by THE CURE and "Alice" by THE SISTERS OF MERCY may be songs one would have expected on Ronny Mooring's perennial playlist anyway; the manner in which he reawakens these tracks to a new life, however, astounds and enthuses more than was deemed possible. Warm, organic, somewhere between wavy electro and fog-clouded goth rock... these honorary tributes show a completely new side to CLAN OF XYMOX – and revive immortal classics as a pleasant side-effect. More surprising is a song like RADIOHEAD's "Creep", that even from the first listen sounds like a well-known CLAN OF XYMOX track and has been most skillfully interpreted. Pieces from DAVID BOWIE ("Heroes", of course), SHOCKING BLUE, DEPARTMENT S, NINE INCH NAILS, as well as SIOUXSIE AND THE BANSHEES (sung by Mojca Zunga) complete an extraordinary release, brimful with emotion and nostalgia.
