Episode 110 – Andre LaFosse

On July 10, 2012, in Podcast, by Patrick Hester

In episode 110 of the Functional Nerds Podcast, Patrick Hester and John Anealio welcome singer / songwriter Andre LaFosse.

About Andre:

Andre LaFosse (pronounced “ON-draye laugh-OSS”) is a guitarist, producer, and chronic deconstructionist tortured (solo) artist. His eclectic, obsessive experiments with gene-splicing his own musical DNA have won him acclaim, controversy, and more than a few puzzled looks from his listeners.  His first CD, Disruption Theory (1999), juxtaposed live electric guitar against intricate electronic programming, and was greeted with both serious critical praise and serious commercial obscurity. In spite of being an instrumental guitar-driven record, the album was profiled in music publications as diverse as Alternative Press, MOJO, Outburn, Expose, and 20th Century Guitar.  After a lengthy absence from recording, Andre has returned in 2012 with two separate solo albums that are as different from one another as they are from anything he’s previously released. The Hard Bargain is his self-described “mid-life crisis rock album.” Built exclusively from a foundation of guitar, bass, and drums, and featuring tightly composed, elaborately arranged material, it’s the completely unfashionable instrumental guitar recording he spent most of the last fifteen years avoiding making. The sister album, Do The Math (aka “the mad scientist modular synth hauntology krautrock album”), places his guitar playing atop a foundation of massive, buzzing, unstable electronics and hypnotic grooves.
