The Ex-Catch my shoe (2010)
I recently saw The Ex play at The secret place in Montpellier with their new singer / guitarist and it was very good, the new line up is really working (last time I saw them it was a few years ago and they played then with the ethiopian saxophonist Getatchew Mechuria, it was quite different but also very good). Catch my shoe, their latest record, released in 2010, was the first with this new formation. 30 years after they formed in 1980 they still are (now it's 33 years after they formed), and more than ever, a unique band in the punk or post-punk galaxy. they have riffs that non others plays, they have rythms like non others, their vocals are also specials, well, they play music like no other band. and that's a really good thing. and what's more is that the result is really interesting and enjoyable at the same time. sharp and noisy but really moving and danceable at the same time. they can even cover a folk ethiopian song, sung in ethiopian by their female drummer, and it fits very well with the rest of the record that is nonetheless a punk record...
if you know them you probably already love them, but if you don't know them, try it.
