Synopsis

Album Description
After their start in 1979, The Ex developed divergent musical styles: noise, rock, jazz, improvisation, and ethnic music, interwoven under one unique umbrella. Discordant, highly rhythmic guitars and the rolling, almost African drumming style give the music its special character. "Turn" contains fourteen new songs; over 80 minutes of music. "At its best, The Ex's agitated racket packed the blast of a hand grenade, sending sonic shrapnel flying off in different directions even as the music magically cohered. While infused with the passion of punk, the music often channeled the energy and excitement of seat-of-your-pants improvisation"--Chicago Tribune.
 

CD Reviews

The Ex - Turn
T. Brady | Seattle, WA USA | 09/15/2004
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This record is fantastic.
The Ex have gone in a new and exciting direction with this double cd. There is alot of African music mixed in the noise; the lyrics are powerful, the noise is organized yet frantic, still with a very punk attitude....like every Ex record.
I would recommend this album highly. I just saw them on their European tour a bunch, and the live experience is second to none.
The Ex have been around for 25 years now, and get better with every record. Pick it up, listen at maximum volume, it will supprise you.
