Now's the Time: The Gang Font
Because jazz-punk is one of the least-loved of all musical subgenres, I suppose it's no surprise that I didn't know that The Gang Font existed until I read Joe Klopus' latest column. The noisy core of the band consists of Dave King (The Bad Plus), Greg Norton (Hüsker Dü) and Erik Fratzke (Happy Apple). Long before my jazz problem became a serious condition, I grew up listening to Midwestern punk bands like Hüsker Dü. The Gang Font perform Sunday at The Record Bar.
