|The Ex chronology|
Aural Guerrilla is the sixth studio album by Dutch anarchist post-punk band The Ex. Released in 1988 simultaneously on the band's own Ex Records in Europe and in the United States indie rock label Homestead Records, Aural Guerrilla was the first of the Ex's studio albums to be widely distributed in the North America. The album's original vinyl release featured multiple pages of newsprint inserts featuring comics, posters, and other information, as well as a regular insert containing the album's lyrics and a replica of the album's cover formatted to the size of an audio cassette alongside a note encouraging the record's owner to duplicate and distribute the album at will. The album's central cover image is that of a gorilla yawning, suggesting the homonymous pun with the album's title, "oral gorilla."
