xex were an
all-synthesizer band from South River, New Jersey who recorded their debut album group:xex in 1980. Formed when a trio of high school misfits with funny names (Waw
Pierogi, Thumbalina Gugielmo and Alex Zander) teamed up with some friends from Rutgers College Performed entirely on then-state-of-the-art Arps,
synths and electronic drums – no guitars anywhere – group: xex aims for the
future, but comes across now like a time capsule from the deepest, darkest
Reagan years. group: xex was all but forgotten until 1998, when radio DJ Tom
Smith discovered it in the WFMU music library and tracked down the band members,
which lead to a CD reissue in 2004 on Smack Shire Records. Just in time for the
30th anniversary of group:xex Dark Entries tracked down Waw Pierogi and
restored the original master tapes with George Horn who remastered the tracks for vinyl at Fantasy Studios.
