The Ex is an anarchist band from the Netherlands. They formed in 1979 at the height of the original punk explosion and have
released more than twenty full length albums since. In the early 1990s they collaborated with the late Tom Cora (September
14, 1953 - April 9, 1998), who was a United States cellist and composer, best known for his improvisational performances in the
field of experimental jazz and rock.
Their collaboration resulted in the albums “Scrabbling At the Lock” in 1991 and the follow-up “And the Weathermen Shrug Their
Shoulders” in 1993.
