    More good news for fans of [url=http://www.theex.nl/home.html]The Ex[/url]!
    <br>
    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>

    Can't wait for this.

    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 ;)

    Any idea if paying on the door is acceptable - i.e. how well have tickets sold?
  9. avatar my-angel-rocks
    I doubt they've sold out in the 3 hours since

    That Guardian article was great. Looking forward to this. :-)
  12. avatar my-angel-rocks
    That was great, probably my favourite gig so far this year.
    Admittedly the only other one I've been to was the Haiti one, but still, this was really enjoyable.

    This was class...
  14. avatar Crackity_jones
    It was aye. Really good crowd out as well. :)

    Really good atmosphere at that show - plenty of dancing too.

    What is the name of the band that supported them?
  16. avatar we love records
    Barry - Zun Zun Egui

    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.

    Where were the kids?
  17. avatar dodgi stereo
    I was expecting a larger crowd too, ah well.
    Those baritone sax moments - incredible.

    Oh Alex!
    You BETTER not talk about this show as much as you talk about those shows. I only didn't go cos I could afford it. Cruel life!
