More good news for fans of [url=http://www.theex.nl/home.html]The Ex[/url]!
On [b:5340d5f7a1]Saturday 6th February 2010[/b:5340d5f7a1] at the[b:5340d5f7a1] Black Box Belfast[/b:5340d5f7a1], [b:5340d5f7a1]The Ex[/b:5340d5f7a1] will unleash a brand new, wild and combustible show in collaboration with [b:5340d5f7a1]Brass Unbound[/b:5340d5f7a1] - a powerful ensemble featuring Swedish force of nature Mats Gustafsson (saxophone) from The Thing, Chicago jazz heavyweight Ken Vandermark (saxophone), Italian wild card Roy Paci (trumpet) and boundary busting classical/futurist Wolter Wierbos (trombone). <br>
Since 1979 The Ex have been involved in a steady stream of boundary-breaking collaborations, releases, tours and films that have established them as a unique but under-acknowledged force in rock music. 30 years into their career this hugely adventurous band are finally getting their dues, aligning them with contemporaries like Sonic Youth and Fugazi or current bands such as Battles, Zu and Action Beat<br>

Moving On Music really need to stop taking tongue-in-cheek Myspace genre labelling seriously though. Zun Zun Egui are no more a Tropical/Thrash band than Dirty Projectors were a Nu-Jazz/2-Step group earlier this year ;)

The Ex were amazing. I reckon it was one of those shows that you talk about for years... I'd put it alongside say a Fugazi show, or the Shellac Empire show, or the Fridge Skibunny show in Vicos. It was that good.
