The EX

The EX – the Netherlands-based icon of European counterculture and one of the leading punk collectives in the history of alternative music. The band, in continuous operation for over 40 years, have released over 20 original albums marked by characteristic, unmistakable sound on the threshold of guitar noise, trance, new wave and uninhibited improvisation. One should add to this several spectacular collaborations, like Brass Unbound (including with Ken Vandermark and Mats Gustafsson in the line-up), the group Chumbawamba, albums featuring Tom Cora or, finally, the legendary collaboration with artists from Ethiopia, and foremost, Getatchew Mekurya. Aside from concert activities, The EX are also famous for their own publishing activity and many artistic fusions, including one with the Polish label Antena Krzyku.
