ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Formed eight years ago from the ranks of the UC Berkeley Marching Band, !Tang is an eight-piece indie-soul extravaganza with a sound that defines "burgeoning." This band will get you up off your ass, grab you by the funkpants, and never let go. But they'll do more than that. They'll make you think, and yes, they might even make you feel something.

Taking postmodern cues from artists like Beck and the Beastie Boys, !Tang moves seamlessly through styles - weaving Soul, Rock, Jazz, and Hip-Hop into a purely original thinking man's dance music. Led energetically by the throat of front man Ray Wilcox, the WAMMIE-winning band has been compared to such artists as Lenny Kravitz, Spearhead, and Sly and the Family Stone. Their Tower-of-Power-esque horn section screams pure funk, while their Phish-esque jams recall their classical and jazz training.

The band has captured their unique sound on three major-label-quality albums ("Oaktown Ring," "How Do You Take It," and "Live at the Elbo Room"), as well as self-producing a track for Todd Rundgren's Cleopatra release "Reconstructed." These recordings showcase !Tang's songwriting and arranging talents and stellar musicianship, while retaining the intensity of the band's live show. They have independently sold over 5000 copies of these releases and continue to blow audiences away up and down the west coast. !Tang has worked with several industry heavy hitters to create a sound that is as exciting and fresh as it is radio-ready.

"This is funk rock. Now, many bands try and fail miserably to harness The Funk. Tang is not one of these. I'm a jaded indie rocker and I LIKE this" Tim Scanlin, Snackcake

"I listened to the album and later struggled to sleep with visions of Starsky & Hutch mowing down garbage cans with their Grand Torino... It's like the controlled chaos of a movie stunt scene that is meticulously planned to only look crazy." Tony Hicks, Contra Costa Times

Ooooh, yeah, this will have you snapping that annoying little cap off your favorite porter or ale in this choice piece of funky jam band perfection. From fans of Spearhead to Tower of Power (eat your heart out!), this jazzy, funky, r&b, hip hop culmination will hold your hand then kick you in the arse on your way to chillin' out. As crisp and fresh as those autumn leaves that decorate that nasty pavement.
