The Gang Font

The Gang Font is what happens when you combine veteran improvisers from the world of modern jazz with a punk rock icon. The Gang Font features Dave King (indie jazz icons The Bad Plus, Happy Apple) on drums, Erik Fratzke (Prog metal giants Zebulon Pike, Happy Apple) on guitar, Bryan Nichols (Chicago and Minneapolis modern jazz stalwart) on keyboards and legendary punk bassist Greg Norton (Husker Du).

After releasing their debut album The Gang Font Featuring Interloper with original keyboardist Craig Taborn in 2007 on Thirsty Ear's highly touted Blue Series, the band regrouped with new keyboardist Nichols to write and record the follow up We Will Not Be Imprisoned In Pictorial Space Frames! (release date TBA). The music combines strong melodic content, avant jazz looseness and prog rock precision with an ease that only comes from strong, iconoclastic instrumentalists. The music bends and breaks. The music breathes and heaves. The music shatters and coagulates. It also makes you think about becoming a super hero.
