Siglo XX was a Belgian Coldwave,[1] Darkwave and Gothic rock[2] group from Genk active from 1979-1989. The group's sound was influenced by Joy Division and Factory Records.[3] Siglo XX was one of the more well-known Belgian coldwave bands[4] and by 2010 was considered to have been a key influence on the Belgian music scene.[5][6] The group's name in Spanish means "twentieth century". It can both be pronounced as Siglo Iks Iks or as Siglo Veinte[7] and reportedly stems from an anarchist movement during the Spanish Civil War[8] and/or a Bolivian mine named Siglo XX that was the scene of social unrest.
