Building a Broken Mousetrap. In September 2004, the Ex, Holland’s longest running anarcho-punk collective, traveled to New York City to play an incendiary show at the Knitting Factory. So, when the Ex landed on US shores at about the same time that President Bush set up camp in New York City to make the dubious case that 9/11 and Iraq were essentially the same thing, one might expect a bit of vitriol. Bands like the Ex were born to skewer situations just like this. And yet, as evidenced by Building a Broken Mousetrap, the band managed to avoid the soapbox, the obvious points, the rants. With her new album 'She's Back' plus a GRAMMY Lifetime Achievement Award, Dionne Warwick remains a regal force among music legends. Christian John Wikane.
Building A Broken Mousetr. has been added to your Cart. This is a somewhat curious release for the Ex. It documents a single 2004 concert by a short-lived lineup of the group (five-piece with Rozemarie on double bass), with all the songs coming from that lineup's only recorded release, Turn. Of course, the Ex, always looking forward, don't generally do "promotional" releases or retrospective projects. The reason this DVD exists is because the band were contacted by a filmmaker who happened to catch them on a . tour a short time before Rozemarie left the band.

Building a Broken Mousetrap, by Jem Cohen, centers around one performance, when Holland-based musicians, The Ex, visited New York to play a concert. THE EX: The Ex have played, in a few incarnations, for over 25 years. They can be fairly described as a punk band, having been involved in the European anarchist/squatter underground that flowered in the 1980's. That said, they have always insisted on exploding genre expectations, especially through influences and collaborations with improvisational and "folk" musicians from around the world.
