Ex energy is back!

Cena stání: 300 CZK / sezení: 350 CZK (platí do 01.09.)

The Ex vydávají po téměř osmi letech nové album s názvem 27 Passports. Album vychází 22.3. a v rámci turné k vydání alba zavítají 18.10. do Paláce Akropolis.

To, že holandská skupina The Ex bývá označována za “post rockovou” či spojována s punkovými kořeny nebo experimentálni scénou, může být zavádějící: podstatné je, že tato výjimečná sestava představuje stálici a kvalitu napříč hudebními žánry, nezávislou na dobových trendech.

Výčet jmen, s nimiž The Ex spolupracovali, připomíná encyklopedii Who-Is-Who posledního čtvrt století: Sonic Youth, Tortoise, Tom Cora, Chumbawamba, John Cale Band, Shellac, Fugazi, John Butcher, Ken Wandermark a další. Tento úctyhodný seznam ještě rozšířili hudebníci world music: malijský hráč na koru Djibril Diabate, Konono No.1 z Konga, kurdský hráč na saz Brader Musuki a řada etiopských umělců . Mezi nejvýznamější z nich patří společný projekt The EX a veterána etiopské hudební scény, saxofonisty Getachewa Mekurii.

The EX jsou průkopníky DIY kultury.

Od svého vzniku vydala kapela 29 řadových alb a odehrála víc než 1900 koncertů po celém světě, nahrávala hudbu k filmům a modernímu tanci, pořádají vlastní festivaly atd.. Některá řadová alba natočil a produkoval legendární Steve Albini. The Ex vydávají alba na své vlastní značce EX records, vedle toho má kytarista Terrie label Terp Records a zpěvák Arnold label Makkum records,

Line up :

TERRIE HESSELS – guitar
ARNOLD DE BOER – vocals, guitar
ANDY MOOR – guitar
KATHERINA BORNEFELD – drums, vocals

A new The Ex album will be released March 22. It's called 27 Passports.

The adventurous, innovative Dutch band The Ex exists 39 years this year and is still going strong. New projects, new songs and new adventures.The Ex have defied categorisation ever since they started playing in 1979. Born out of the punk explosion, when anything and everything was possible, the band have still managed to retain both curiosity and passion for their music. Using guitars, bass, drums and voice as their starting point, The Ex have continued to musically explore undiscovered areas right up to the present day.

Already the early 1980s saw collaborations with jazz musicians and an Iraqi-Kurdish band. In the 90s the group found a myriad of partners from varied musical and non-musical backgrounds like Kamagurka, Tom Cora, Sonic Youth, Han Bennink, Jan Mulder and Shellac. In 2002 The Ex set up a lively musical exchange with Ethiopia, organised many projects over there and invited several Ethiopian musicians to Europe. Most striking was the collboration with the legendary saxophonist Getatchew Mekuria, which eventually led to two CD recordings and more than a hundred concerts.

The band also started organising the ‘Ex Festivals’, where they invited their favourite musicians. A mix of jazz improvisers, musicians from all over the world and local treasures they came across on tour. The last few years saw collaborations with Brass Unbound (Wolter Wierbos, Mats Gustafsson, Ken Vandermark and Roy Paci), Circus Debre Berhan and Fendika, both from Ethiopia, and many, many more.

After all these years, more than 28 albums and around 1900 concerts the band continues to work as they did in when they began, completely independent of record companies, managers or roadies. Because of this ‘do it yourself’ work ethic The Ex is still a great example for other forward-thinking bands and musicians.
