Xmal Deutschland - The Peel Sessions (12" EP, vinyl rip). 1985.

   An all girl line up, ghoulish shrieks and dark dance beats surrounded by dreamy keyboards.
   Xmal Deutschland formed in Hamburg, Germany in 1980 and only two years later they opened for The Cocteau Twins in London.
   They gained a large group of enthousiastic followers and they became much more than a cult band. They signed to the 4AD label and gradually they changed their doom rock sound to a lighter but still eerie direction. 
   Their fourth and last LP "Devils" was a disappointment with a mainstream pop sound and this was the end of this band but they will always be remembered for their first three LPs ("Fetisch"- 1983, "Tocsin"- 1984 and "Viva" - 1987), records which were real gifts for the dark music scene of the '80's.


   This EP was recorded for the radio show of the famous dj, producer and journalist John Peel in April 30th 1985 in Radio One - BBC and they are original live in studio recordings made exclusively for this radio show. There is a huge list of bands who recorded for John Peel and they released these songs in vinyl by Strange Fruit records - the famous "The John Peel Sessions". For the catalog take a look here.
