"Born as Luc Klaasen in 1958 in Holland. After being a taxi-driver in Amsterdam he started his activities as musician (The Ex), making films (Mal Films) and was also one of the founders of the CD distribution and production company 'Konkurrent Onafhankelijk Muziekbedrijf BV'. In 2015 he stopped with his work @ Konkurrent.

For many years he was one of the driving forces behind the band THE EX.The Ex received large international recognition for there unconventional and fresh interpretation of music and its different styles, their consistent political attitude, their 'organic way' of making music and the fact they kept their independancy from the big commercial musicbusiness. After they won the national dutch pop-price 'BV POP' price in 1991 this appreciation only got bigger.

The Ex always worked with a diverge variety of artists and musicians like Han Bennink, Ab Baars, american avantgarde cellist Tom Cora (The Ex & Tom Cora 1991-1995), kurdish singer Brader, the Malian group Lanaya and toured with popgroups like Sonic Youth, Shellac, Chumbawamba, Tortoise & Fugazi.

One of his last projects within The Ex was the spectacular orchestra 'EX ORKEST': a 20 piece bigband with an enormous sound, dynamics and energy. Lyrics were written by the dutch writer and ex-soccer player Jan Mulder (Ajax, Anderlecht)."

"Along with his work as part of the acclaimed art/punk rock band Sonic Youth, Thurston Moore [b. born July 25, 1958] also pursued numerous solo and side projects, including Even Worse and the Dim Stars with Richard Hell. His first solo album, 1994's Psychic Hearts, featuring ex-Half Japanese guitarist Tim Foljahn and Sonic Youth drummer Steve Shelley, had an appropriately offhand feel but was far from sloppy. Along with carrying Sonic Youth into the 2000s, Moore collaborated with artists including DJ Spooky and Nels Cline, wrote music reviews and other pieces for Arthur magazine, and issued a book, Mix Tape: The Art of Cassette Culture, in 2005. His second song-based album, Trees Outside of the Academy, arrived in 2007, and featured largely acoustic arrangements and cameos by Shelley, Samara Lubelski, and Dinosaur Jr.'s J Mascis. In 2010, Moore guested on the Hat City Intuitive's A Ticket for Decay and began laying the foundation for another solo effort, Demolished Thoughts, which appeared the following year.

Following Moore's separation from bandmate, wife, and partner Kim Gordon in late 2011, Sonic Youth was put on indefinite pause. Nevertheless, Moore and Gordon collaborated with Yoko Ono the following year on the album YOKOKIMTHURSTON. By 2012, Moore had begun touring and recording with new act Chelsea Light Moving, as well as joining black metal group Twilight on guitar. The year 2013 saw the release of @, a collaborative album of sax/guitar improvisations with fellow N.Y.C. fringe dweller John Zorn. Arriving in 2014, The Best Day saw Moore shedding the softer acoustic moods of Demolished Thoughts for a return to his signature rock sprawl and daydreamy lyrics. Two years later, he issued the single "Feel It in Your Guts," which was available to anyone who donated to Bernie Sanders' presidential campaign. For 2017's Rock n Roll Consciousness, Moore reunited with his backing band for The Best Day -- Sonic Youth drummer Shelley, My Bloody Valentine bassist Deb Googe, and Nought guitarist James Sedwards -- on a mystically inspired set of songs."
