FINALLY!!! Re-released on vinyl, after 40 years. The Ex's very first official 7". Out on September 25th, 2020, in collaboration with Superior Viaduct.
PRE-ORDERING IS POSSIBLE NOW.
"All Corpses Smell The Same, The Ex's first single, marks the beginning of this DIY odyssey – appearing in June 1980 on Hé Records, a precursor to the "band's own stalwart Ex Records imprint. The core of The Ex's propulsive sound can be found in these tracks, as they show a band starting to push beyond the boundaries of punk. The exuberant jag and slash of Terrie Ex's guitar drive "Human Car" and "Rock 'N' Roll-Stoel," while the rhythmic churn of "Cells" and "Apathy Disease" hints at the shape of Ex music to come – centering on vocalist G.W. Sok's incisive poetic invective.
With only 500 copies pressed originally and gone in a flash, All Corpses Smell The Same quickly became a legendary piece of the international punk puzzle, and The Ex would begin an inspiring career that continues to this day. These songs show that from the jump, The Ex were operating on punk's freest and most exploratory edges. In the words of The Mekons' Jon Langford,The Ex have 'always epitomized the boundless potential of punk's initial moment'."
This first-time reissue comes with original sleeve design and 8-page booklet.
