Chris Comer and Rob Ervin have been fans of 1980's hard rock band Hüsker Dü since their days in college radio. Therefore they were quite thrilled to talk to seminal post-punk rock icon Greg Norton, former Hüsker Dü bassist. After fifteen years out of the music scene working as a restaurant chef, Greg Norton is in a new band with a jazz-punk edge, called The Gang Font Featuring Interloper.
The Gang Font features Dave King from The Bad Plus on drums, the ubiquitous Craig Taborn on Fender Rhodes and keyboards, and Erik Fratzke on guitar. In this interview Greg talks about what he's been doing since Hüsker Dü broke up, what's up with this new band The Gang Font Feat. Interloper, his restaurant, "The Nortons," in Red Wing, Minnesota and, of course, his famous mustache.
