von Frickle biography
Band of the new millenium, sound of the contemporary, art ascension of no specific familiarisation, the quartet of VON FRICKLE (Lee Fehr on guitar and guitar synthesizers, John Ganser as main percussion-showing though talent of mixing and synthing, bassist Dan Meyer and Ken Thornton, also guitarist and "electronist") is an agressive (as in hard sounding) expression of modern prog (art) rock music, a music exploration devotement, in the lines of infused instrumentality and in the tempo of rock rush.
