1. Termination Point
2. Coming Forth In Light
3. Nadir And Eventual Decay


Rob Andrews and Davis Gate in 1983

Obscure instrumental, synth, space-rock, electro post new-wave band from Shrewsbury in the 1980s.

Despite getting some prestigious exposure at Electronica Festivals in Sheffield and London, and regular local gigs, The Land Of Yrx had to be one of the most unstable of bands, in that they kept splitting up and trying out other projects before getting back together for a while, expanding to four or five piece on at least two occasions before splitting again. I guess if it weren't for our two Auricle cassette releases, there would be even less info on the web these days.

The 30th anniversary of "Coming Forth In Light" seemed to be the apt time for reissuing three of their finest releases, all now with superior sound, and for the first time the complete 33 minute "Annus Mirabilis 1983"
