The Ex - Singles. Period. The Vinyl Years 1980–1990

"Singles. Period. The Vinyl Years 1980–1990" is a compilation album by Dutch punk rock band The Ex, containing most of their singles released between 1980 and 1990. The collection does not include the band's double-single 1936, The Spanish Revolution, nor their "6" series or their collaborations with artists such as Chumbawumba and Dog Faced Hermans.
 
Singles. Period. was released in 2005 by Touch and Go Records during a time when The Ex's material was only being issued physically on compact disc. The band later returned to releasing albums on vinyl, and even began to issue new 7" singles in 2010.

The Ex has explored many musical directions through the years, including avant-garde jazz and experimental music. But on this decade's-worth of singles and B-sides released as part of its 25th anniversary celebrations the Dutch anarcho-socialist outfit hews close to its early-'80s punk ideals. The primitive punk polka of "Stupid Americans" is a raucous vehicle for the band's anti-imperialist, anti-capitalist worldview, while the angular "Human Car" wears its affinity with late-'70s punk groups like Gang Of Four and the Mekons on its ripped sleeve. Unapologetically political yet never dull, lyrics are screamed or chanted, scrambling for attention through a tumultuous mix of primal drums, clanking bass, and searing guitar.
