Original poster for The Ex: Single Weapons for El Salvador

N.p. Gramschap and Ex, 1981. Vintage poster for an early 1981 single by The Ex, "Weapons for El Salvador." Discogs, which lists the single as "War is Over (Weapons for El Salvador)" notes that the single was released with a poster and lyric booklet, likely the poster found here. The poster features text in Dutch in the left border which reads "Salvadorian guerrillas en route to clash with government forces somewhere in northern El Salvador."

Formed during the Dutch punk explosion of 1979, The Ex have been steadily producing music for 40 years, blending a variety of genres including punk, free jazz, and folk music from Hungary, Turkey, Ethiopia, Congo, and Eritrea. In the early 2000s the band formed a running collaboration with legendary Ethiopian saxophonist Getatchew Mekuria, leading to more than a hundred concerts and two recordings.

23.75 x 16.75, folded as issued. Very Good, with a few thumb sized stains, a small chip at the lower right corner, and four pin holes at the other three corners, with associated small tears.
