The Ex’s Rozemarie and Terrie. Uncredited photo from www.theex.nl
mike reviews THE EX! The Ex – Turn (Touch and Go) The Ex are a Dutch agit-punk band, 25 years and 17 or 18 albums on from their formation, and still difficult to pigeonhole. They combine catchy rock, touches of punk, and group improvisation. Being a collective of sorts shows up in their music with the communication level between the musicians. They have a male singer but the drummer comes out from behind her kit and sings on a few tracks. I love this description of song topics on their web site: “Songs about freedom, pies and justice, confusion, insomnia, the nightmare that’s called Kissinger, the power of poets and painters, dogs, sloths, and sisters... No idols, no soap”. I’d also add, a song based on a riff from the Republic of Congo group Konono and an Eritrean liberation song. They have a new bass player, Rozemarie, who plays a standup bass, often bowing it. This double CD starts off with a bang; two simple guitar riffs whirling around each other, drum rolls, a bowed bass, and the straightforward message, “We need poets, we need painters.” The second track, “Prism Song” immediately shows off the band’s diversity. The bass starts jazzy but the guitar goes rock. The deadpan
female vocals remind us of the emptiness of consumerism. The track slowly builds in intensity and loudness, one guitar plays with feedback while the other jangles. “Dog Tree” is tighter and more controlled with spoken lyrics; at least that’s how the track starts. The guitars then do a couple of short improvised bursts including a call and response. “Getatchew” is an instrumental tribute to Ethiopian sax player Getatchew Mekurya. It’s one big complicated buildup. One of the highlights of the record is “The Pie”. Not only is this a great song but you get a useful pie recipe introducing the track, which is about the prank pie-ing of several individuals a couple of years ago. “Some people say that the pie is the limit, but a pastry at a time is an answer to their crime.” ”3:45 AM” is a rockin, busy, and quick track. To use one of The Ex’s own phrases, this is a beautiful frenzy! The track ends with simple guitar and the bass player knocking on the wood of her standup bass. Disc two starts off with an interesting story. Last year, the band toured the Republic of Congo with the Congan group Konono (Orchestre Tout Puissant Likembe Konono no.
1). Konono plays mostly amplified likembé (thumb-pianos). The Ex loved one of Konono’s songs so much they asked if they could use the “riff”. This song is based around that riff and the results are surprising and amazing. On one hand it sounds like a simple 60s rock riff but on the other it has that repetitive groove of high energy African groups. The next track, “Huriyet,” continues with the African influence and has a very different sound from anything else on the record. This track is a beautiful Eritrean liberation song. The only percussion is handclaps, the guitar is mostly quiet, and the vocals are dual female vocals of the bass player and drummer. The song is sung in Tigre, a language from north Eritrea. “The Idunno Law” starts with hand held radios being tuned to different stations through the guitar and bass pickups. This track shows the mellower side of the band with bowed bass, quiet guitar and restrained vocals. The Ex are one of the best live bands I’ve ever seen and their interaction, playfulness, diversity in influence, politics, and ability to make beautiful rock noise all come through on this double CD release. — mike

sonic assault. Parker and Drake were amazing as always, and I have a newfound respect for Steve Swell on the trombone.
04/22 — Medeski, Martin & Wood Café Du Nord, SF MMW’s stop in SF on their small club, “improv jazz” tour. It’s nice to be able to see them explore their boundaries rather than play funk for the kids (though that’s plenty fun too).
10/02–10/03 — SF Bluegrass Festival Golden Gate Park, SF
04/06 — Casual Dots Hemlock, SF
Top 10 live music events I attended in 2004
In reverse chronological order... 11/03 — Maja Ratkje, Arve Henriksen 964 Natoma, SF Spacey Norwegian electronics. Ratkje is a prolific assault noise improviser; my favorite part of her set was her singing, tweaking and morphing her voice as she traded off with a tape recorder she played into the microphone. Henriksen played a stunning set, very sparse and pretty. Playing flutes and mouthpieceless trumpet into a bank of electronics, he created a hauntingly beautiful soundscape.
I still can’t believe they put this on every year FOR FREE. Four stages packed with heavy hitters and local acts alike over two days. If you miss out on this you’re not a live music fan. 09/21 — The Ex, Han Bennink Great American Music Hall, SF
10/14 — Peter Brotzmann / Marino Pliakas / Michael Wertmueller Jazz House, Berkeley
I hadn’t really known too much about the Ex before I saw the show, but I do now. Amazing. And add to that a fantastic short solo set from Han Bennink.
10/06 — William Parker / Hamid Drake / Steve Swell / Jemeel Moondoc Jazz House, Berkeley
06/05 — Acid Mothers Temple, Psychic Paramount Bottom of the Hill, SF
RIP Jazz House, another casualty in the war of Planning & Zoning against avant-jazz venues. Thankfully they didn’t give up without a fight! Brotzmann teamed up with two Swiss improvisers whom I hadn’t heard before for an awesome
The AMT were good as usual, but the Psychic Paramount win the 2004 “Best Opening Act I Hadn’t Heard Of” award. Dark, improvised, mathy rocknroll . . . hopefully coming to a radio station near you next year.
Holy shit this show rocked. Loud grrl surf with plenty of attitude. The album is good and all, but it paled in comparison to seeing them up close at the Hemlock. 03/20 — Extra Action Marching Band Command Center, Oakland Definitely the most fun show of the year. Extra Action covering Black Sabbath with Extreme Elvis as Ozzy, featuring an awesome stage setup, crazy Vegas-style dance routines, great costumes, and a pumped up crowd. 01/24 — Monolake, Kit Clayton Recombinant Labs, SF Spacey improv in the best place to see live electronic music in the city. They’ve got speakers and video screens covering every available surface and a special mixing board so the artists to play with every aspect of the sound. A fascinatingly immersive experience.

England: Electrelane — The Power Out: all-female band who rocks – and pops – with synthesizers. Israel: Izabo — Fun Makers: loud innovative psychedelia with a funk attitude. Austria: Son of the Velvet Rat — By My Side: minimal folk, haunting and beautiful. Scotland: Sons and Daughters — Love the Cup: upbeat folk-rock with Americana touch. Japan: Ex-Girl — Endangered Species: way-out-there rock from Japanese all-female outfit. Holland: Ex — Turn: Edgy guitar rock from the veteran socially-aware punkers. Germany: Cobra Killer — 76/77: Electoklash! Elektroclash! Elektroklash! Electroclash! Norway: Jaga Jazzist — The Stix: Neu-jazz, which just means they have a beat; it’s beautiful, it’s Scandinavian.

Florida: This Bike Is a Pipe Bomb — Front Seat Solidarity: rootsy country punk with a message from a tiny label. Yeah, I know, it’s not a country. But Scotland isn’t, either!

Each month, KZSU’s music department selects ten outstanding new releases worthy of the “KZSU RECOMMENDS” label. Now you can find the latest KZSU recommended CDs right on campus by vsiting the Stanford Bookstore!
“Pick of the Month” for JANUARY 2005:
1. Sleepwalker: “The Voyage” [12”] (Especial). Unquestionably the best track of 2004. Japanese jazz quartet Sleepwalker teams up with sax legend Pharoah Sanders for a 13 minute, blazin’ jazz odyssey. Highest possible recommendation! 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. 10. 11.
Hidden Vagenda (Secretly Canadian Records) “Jaw-droppingly good folky singer/song-writer stuff with beautifully devastating lyrics. Simple vocals express the most emotion I’ve ever heard conveyed in a monotone. Funny, narrative, and moving, many of the songs are written in the voice of a troubled child. Like Leonard Cohen but with a sense of humor, or like Joanna Newsom but with death and child abuse. I want to listen to this album over and over.” —Kathryn

MY TOP 25 OF 2004
25. Exodus — Tempo of the Damned. Return to the roots, well-done Bay Area thrash with a few minor modern touches. 24. Death Angel — The Art of Dying. Quirky, prog-lite Bay Area thrash, long-awaited reunion album. Excellent live show, too.
tive. Or whatever the hell that word’s supposed to mean.
of an actual concept outside the realm of hardcore music”.
13. Dream Theater — Train of Thought. Was this a 2003 release? I don’t remember, but it’s damn good!
2. God Forbid — Gone Forever. Who knew that clean vocals and metal could go well together? Now, if they hadn’t stolen all the good riffs for the year...
12. Fear Factory — Archetype. Another reunion album. Is 2004 the year of reunions? 11. Iced Earth — The Glorious Burden. Love thy flag, and fire thy band members at will.
23. Jag Panzer — Casting the Stones. Classic American heavy metal, one of the leaders of the genre, getting better with each release.
10. Machine Head — Through the Ashes of Empires. An actual return to form. I think this is even better than their first (gasp!)
22. Kataklysm — Serenity in Fire. Fun death metal, catchy riffing, and an inhuman drummer.
9. Misery Index — Dissent EP. Boo capitalism! Yay deathgrind!
B E S T
21. The End — Within Dividia. Truly progressive, chaotic metal, with a neat concept story.
8. Meshuggah — I. One, two, one, four, one, seven, five, one, two, eight, one, four, one, one, two, four, two, three, one, one, three, one, one, one, three, three, one, two...
19. Subterranean Masquerade — Temporary Psychotic State. One of the most varied recordings of all time, too many influences to list. Pity it’s only an EP; full length coming in Spring of 2005.
7. The Haunted — rEVOLVEr. Another (kinda) reunion! Awesome!
18. Monster Magnet — Monolithic Baby! Less stoner, more rock. Less dope, more babes! And bewbies!
5. Arsis — A Celebration of Guilt. A classicallytrained violinist writes the best damn melodic death metal album since you-know-who’s “Slaughter of the Soul”.
2 0 0 4
16. Ayreon — The Human Equation. More musicians were involved in this project than it takes to screw in a lightbulb...
20. Psyopus — Ideas of Reference. A bunch of madmen, I swear!
17. Capharnaum — Fractured. Matt Heafy is a cool dude, but the tight jeans gotta go!
15. Textures — Polars. The perfect combination of Meshuggah and John Coltrane. 14. Circle Takes the Square — As The Roots Undo. Emo that that’s actually emotional. Or emo-
6. Mastodon — Leviathan. Hey, the indie-loving douchebags at Pitchfork finally got one right!
1. Lamb of God — Ashes of the Wake. Does the fact that this is on a major label do anything bad to my cred?
Big Disappointments of 2004 In Flames — Soundtrack to Your Escape. If I hear one more song fade out with those annoying electronics, I’m gonna strangle somebody. And who’s the genius producer who told Anders Friden he could sing? Killswitch Engage — The End of Heartache. I have never heard anything more bland, more uninspired, and more pointless. Except for “Rose of Sharyn”, that song is awesome! Unearth — The Oncoming Storm. Quite possibly the most overhyped album in the underground. There is nothing to set this one apart from the myriad of metalcore releases this year.
4. All That Remains — This Darkened Heart. Phil Labonte was in what band?!?! Pffffft, who cares, these guys are better!
Cradle of Filth — Nymphetamine. An immense letdown following their masterpiece concept album from last year. Yet, it sold better, was liked by more people, and it even regained them some “credibility”. Double-U! Teeee! Efffff!
3. Zao — The Funeral of God. And the Lord said unto the few remaining founding members of Zao “You will tone down your preachiness, and think
Shadows Fall — The War Within. Except for an awesome intro song, this one was a snooze-fest all the way through for me.
