Sabot is an instrumentalavant-rock duo that was formed in 1988 in San Francisco by the rhythm section of the punk trio Forethought - Hillary Binder (drums) and Christopher Rankin (bass guitar). Nowadays they live in Czech Republic. Sabot's music is a kind of complex progressive jazzrock. Since no other instruments than drums and bass are used, the music avoids sounding anything like the jazzprog from the seventies. Some resemblance to the Japanese duo Ruins can be heard, mostly because they have the same set-up and complex song structures.
