The renegade Swiss ensemble LE REX reinvents brass groove music with the improvisation-laced ESCAPE OF THE FIRE ANTS, beautiful and fiercely creative music for strange times.
Escape of the Fire Ants announces the arrival of LE REX

Harry Lime, the charming but dastardly anti-hero in the classic 1949 film noir The Third Man, famously dissed Switzerland saying „they had brotherly love, they had 500 years of democracy and peace – and what did that produce? The cuckoo clock.“ The renegade Swiss quintet Le Rex isn’t making up for lost time, but there’s an urgency and creative ferocity to their music that would make Lime reconsider his unfair denigration
