Wildman saxophonist Izaak Mills leads the formidable bopcore trio Floss featuring MCMC founders John Seman and Mark Ostrowski on bass and drums. Floss draws its sound from the hardcore records of the eighties, but its soul belongs to the free improvisation scene of late sixties Chicago. Captured live in the studio by Zachary Watkins, their 2004 release Unwaxed is a carnival of "frenetic bop lines atop scurrying grooves. Plodding bong-rock beats and spacey flute interludes appear too, but saxophonist Izaak Mills, bassist John Seman, and drummer Mark Ostrowski mostly keep things fast and fun." - The Stranger
One is quick to think of Ken Vandermark, Kidd Jordan, or name another energy-based reed player, when hearing this band work it out. Izaak Mills is a treasure. There is a quirkiness to him, in his posture, his movements, and even his embouchure that translates cleanly through each note from his horn. He is a joy to watch and hear. Suffused with funk, R&B, and the rawest methods of American free improv, Floss plays powerful music, the kind by which we should soon identify with the term, "working band." -Alan Jones, Bagatellen
While anarchy is a part of what Floss does, a strange sense of beauty sometimes pervades. The dichotomy of the group only makes them more interesting, and it provides a necessary contrast to make their entire program flow. Floss is an intriguing and, for the most part, successful combination of abandon and restraint, chaos and organization, that will appeal to listeners prepared to be at once shocked and appeased. -John Kelman, All About Jazz
There seems to be a playfulness in their sound, a feeling of communal spirit and fortitude. But thereâs a punk sensibility as well - an overall sonic aggressiveness, and a do-it-yourself individualism. - John Ewing, Earshot Jazz
Originators of the Bopcore genre, Miles Gloriosus and His Golden Floss are a band of jazz nazis.
