Ed Rose's production resume comprises a who's who of local and regional rock bands: The Appleseed Cast, Butterglory, The Casket Lottery, Coalesce, Arthur Dodge, The Esoteric, The Get Up Kids, Kill Creek, Reggie and the Full Effect, Slackjaw, Stick, Ultimate Fakebook, Vitreous Humor and White Whale, to name a few.
Fifteen years have passed since Rose drew his first paycheck as a professional sound engineer in Los Angeles. Today, in partnership with former Get Up Kids Rob and Ryan Pope, Rose owns and operates Black Lodge Recording, formerly Red House, in Eudora. The Pope-Rose business consortium moved into downtown Lawrence earlier this year with the purchase of The Bourgeois Pig bar and coffeehouse.
Street Level joins Rose at The Pig for a frank conversation about pesky pirates, lazy kids, and the dying art of musicianship. This podcast includes a mix of highlights of Rose-produced tracks by American Analog Set, Arthur Dodge and the Horsefeathers, Thee Higher Burning Fire, Kill Creek, Limbeck, Stick, Matt Suggs and Vitreous Humor (a full track listing and more info here).
