Since they started in 1979, The Ex from Amsterdam have been a unique music and band experiment in Europe: Noise, rock, jazz, improvisation and ethnic music alongside the engagement with politics, history and music itself. They call it ›Ex-Music‹. That which used to be music. Disharmonic, extremely rhythmic guitars, rolling drums often influenced by African beats and the intense performance of texts full of arguments on why one should deal with the conflicts of the world lend the music of The Ex its illustrious name.

They have given more than 1,800 concerts to date in Europe, North and South America and Africa, and produced more than 140 albums, CDs and DVDs. One of the band’s greatest successes is that they have managed to make music with heart and soul and remain autonomous outside of commercial trends and expectations. The Ex will play new songs at the Schwankhalle in 2016.
