These fervent Dutch activists are seeking to hijack the trad rock format and fly it to their very own Cuba.
The Ex create music that's abrasive, driving and challenging, much of it recorded live, shards of guitar, bass and drums coalescing like jagged pieces of a puzzle, pumped up by influences that introduce the post-punk jar of Gang of Four, The Fall and Sonic Youth, and the spirit and experimentation of Crass, albeit more accessible. Intelligent, intriguing and well-executed.
Digital album available from Bandcamp.
