Concessionaires – Artificial Interface
Concessionaires is the duo of Brad Rose and Pete Fosco. Brad is of course the mastermind of the esteemed Digitalis label and Foxy Digitalis webzine and is known also for his many musical projects, such as The North Sea, Charlatan, Altar Eagle, just to name a few. Pete is a guitarist born in Cincinnati Ohio and now resides on the other side of the Ohio river in Kentucky…he also plays in Early Tunnels with Jon Lorenz and as a sometimes guest member of Wasteland Jazz Ensemble.
In the spring of 2010 and 2011 the Foscos made a road trip to Digitalis headquarters for the purpose of building friendships, sharing brews, and recording some messy synthesizer meets Fender Telecaster jams. After a few tape releases on Gift Tapes and Dial Square Tapes the boys decided it was time to do an LP. The always stellar Matt McDowell (Sagas, Waterfinder, Biological Radio) was kind enough to mix, remix and master from hours of long jams, and Artificial Interface is the result. ”Best enjoyed with a pot of chilli and a Bourbon barrel ale.
