DOWNLOAD: The Ex - "Cold Weather Is Back" (M4A)

The Ex

The Ex's music has undergone significant evolution over the years from their beginnings as a punk band. Founded in 1979 by singer G.W. Sok, guitarist Terrie Hessels, drummer Geurt and bassist René, the band debuted with a song titled "Stupid Americans" on the Utreg-Punx vinyl 7" compilation released by Rock Against records in Rotterdam. The release of their first 7" All Corpses Smell the Same followed shortly after that, in 1980. Through the decades their music has gradually developed into its current form of highly intricate, experimental punk/post-punk/no wave-inspired work.-[Wiki]
Celebrating more than 30 years as a band, The Ex will drop their 25th CD/LP release on their own Ex Records and 123rd overall release on January 25th, 2011. The record, called Catch My Shoe, features "Cold Weather Is Back" available for download above.

The Ex 2010 is:

TERRIE HESSELS - guitar, baritone guitar (1979-present)
ARNOLD DE BOER - vocals, guitar, sampler (2009-present)
ANDY MOOR - guitar, baritone guitar (1990-present)
KATHERINA BORNEFELD - drums, vocals (1984-present)
And less than two months after the release, The Ex will hit the road for a string of select North American dates in the first quarter of 2011, including a show in NYC at Le Poisson Rouge on March 10th with Liturgy. Tickets go on sale December 10th. 2010.

Liturgy played Acheron on Friday 12/3 with Orphan and Dope Body. Their only other upcoming show is their appearance at Roadburn (with Winter!). They are no longer playing the 12/9 show at Glasslands. Video from the Acheron show is below.

The Ex visited NYC in 2008 and played the Big Ears Fest in Knoxville earlier this year. All current dates and some videos below...

Yep, poor planning indeed!

If it was a true reunion, I'd go with Crass. With the actual lineup I'd 100% check out The Ex....awesome guitar work and they've recorded with Sonic Youth, Tortoise, Misha Mengleberg and Han Fucking Bennink! Just shows the level of musicianship they match up to.

Either way you decide, I'm sure it will be a good time.

Crass is just Crass karaoke with Steve and hired hands. The Ex are legit.

liturgy is the worst band in nyc

The Ex are worth seeing and have a healthy amount of substance to their catalog of albums.

Why are they playing with Liturgy. They are not in the same musical world at all?
No offense to Liturgy. It's just a real odd match.

The EX now has one original member if you want to look at it that way
The lead singer who has been with them since the beginning left the band last year and now it's only the guitarist,Terrie, who has also been there since the beginning.
Katherina Bornefeld is one of my favorite percussionists been with EX since 1984

I wish they were both on the same bill..that would be awesome

Liturgy and the Ex are both great bands. Great line up!

Maybe leave out those Liturgy vocals and it would be alright.

Liturgy should have played with Watain.
