Introducción

    [fuente] The Ex es una banda musical anarquista de los Países Bajos. Se formaron en 1979 en el momento de la explosión del punk original y desde entonces han publicado más de veinte álbumes de larga duración.

    La música del grupo ha sufrido una notable evolución a través de los años, comenzando como una simple banda anarcopunk «lo-fi». Debutaron con la canción «Stupid Americans» en el EP recopilatorio Utreg Punx, publicado por Rock Against Records en Rotterdam en verano de de 1980. Poco después llegó la publicación de su primer 7" All Corpses Smell the Same. A lo largo de las décadas fueron desarrollando gradualmente su actual obra, altamente intrincada, experimental, de inspiración punk, post punk y new wave.

    Irrumpiendo desde los confines relativamente estrechos del punk rock, The Ex han incorporado un amplio abanico de influencias, a menudo procedentes de fuentes no occidentales y ajenas al rock. Estas incluyen la música folk húngara y turca y, más recientemente, la música de Etiopía, Congo y Eritrea (cuya canción de la independencia es versionada por The Ex en el álbum Turn). Otros ejemplos de ramificación estilística se hallan en el doble álbum de música improvisada Instant y en una publicación editada bajo el alias «Ex Orkest», una big band de 20 piezas reunida para realizar actuaciones en un festival en Holanda. Ellos se definen irónicamente como "Experimental trance-dance avant-afro-pop improv music".

    La banda ha realizado con éxito colaboraciones con artistas muy diversos, como la banda anarquista británica Chumbawamba (a veces utilizando el nombre Antidote), los Dog Faced Hermans (un antiguo miembro de esta banda, Andy Moor, es actualmente parte de The Ex), y con el difunto violoncellista de avant-garde Tom Cora a comienzos de los años 1990, colaboración esta última que dio como frutos el álbum Scrabbling At the Lock en 1991 y el subsiguiente And the Weathermen Shrug Their Shoulders en 1993. También han colaborado con miembros de Sonic Youth, la orquesta holandesa de improvisación libre ICP, y publicaron un EP en colaboración con los americanos Tortoise.

    El bajista Luc dejó la banda en 2003, sustituido por Rozemarie (contrabajo),​ En 2005, Rozemarie dejó la banda.​ y el cantante y fundador G.W. Sok fue sustituido por el líder de Zea, Arnold de Boer, en 2009.​

    The Ex protagonizaron el documental Building a Broken Mousetrap (2006), dirigido por Jem Cohen.

Comentario personal:

    Desde mi punto de vista esta es la banda que más ha influenciado el punk (sobre su vertiente que a mí me parece más real, que es la experimental, la de hacer lo que te de la gana con el "arte", que pa' eso es arte, aunque no sepas tocar un instrumento... aunque no sepas las "reglas de la poesía"). Esta gente lleva autoeditando y produciendo sus historias desde tiempo inmemorial... podrían haber firmado un contrato con absolutamente cualquier multinacional. Treinta años después aún se dignan a tocar en okupas, centros sociales... Y sí, también en auditorios, por qué no. ¡Un saludo!

In 1986, the Dutch anarchist punk group the Ex marked the 50th anniversary of the Spanish Revolution (in which factions led by two anarchist trade unions, the CNT and the FAI, waged a successful revolt against Franco's fascist leadership, until Franco defeated the people's forces with the help of German, Italian, and Russian troops) with the release of 1936: The Spanish Revolution. This ambitious release paired four songs on two 7" singles with an impressive 144-page hardcover book that featured several short essays on the revolution, along with a remarkable collection of photographs taken by journalists aligned with the revolutionary forces. If the book is hardly the final word on the Spanish Revolution, it's a powerful and enlightening visual document that casts a fresh light on a major historical event little understood in the United States. In many ways, the book is such a strong piece of work that the music which accompanies it nearly pales in comparison, though it certainly finds the Ex in excellent form. The lyrics to all four songs were adapted from songs and essays by leaders of the 1936 revolt, with two in Spanish and two in English; on "El Tren Blindado," the band even trades in their traditionally jagged electric guitar sound for an acoustic arrangement that approaches the tone of Spanish folk music. Rabble-rousing has always been high on the Ex's list of priorities, and this music -- especially the passionate "They Shall Not Pass" and "People Again" -- find them inviting the spirit of the revolution as if it occurred five minutes ago, not 50 years past. It's heady, powerful stuff. This remarkable package was reissued in 1998, with the two 7" singles replaced by a pair of 3" CD's, and it's well worth seeking out for students of radical history as well as followers of passionate, uncompromising rock & roll. ~ Mark Deming, All Music Guide

Como veo que los pocos enlaces que había en descarga directa están out, recopilo mi carpeta personal de esta tremendísima banda y la pongo en lanzamiento.
