Scrabbling at the Lock. Scrabbling at the Lock. LP - Mississippi Records. Teaming up with the extraordinary avant-garde cellist Tom Cora of Skeleton Crew and Roof for his baffling solo cello improvisations, this formation explored the delicate modalities of European folk. A beautiful, candid recording that marks an inspired new tangent for the Ex which sparked themes that would run through their recordings for the remainder of the decade - where folk and free improvisation would collide elegantly with their soaring autodidactic avant-rock. 80. Tyler, the Creator. 78. Carly Rae Jepsen.

Scrabbling at the Lock is the first of two albums by Dutch punk band The Ex in collaboration with avant-garde cellist Tom Cora. It is also the first of The Ex's studio albums to feature the work of then Dog Faced Hermans guitarist Andy Moor, who has remained in the band ever since. The album features heavy interplay of two guitars, bass, cello and more prominent female vocals. He found the album to "explore the delicate modalities of European folk. The Wire described the collaboration as "unusual even by their far-reaching standards.
