Time Has Come
The Subcons story begins unabruptly in Princeton, New Jersey, where the self-taught musicians Richard Bruno and Fletcher Foti imported their high school rock band to the college scene. They have since released 3 albums and played shows from Long Island to Manhattan to DC, drawing crowds of up to 3000 people. To this date, they maintain the number 5 spot for the most downloads on Loudenergy.com for the track 'Angels and Electrons,' which they recorded in the studio of David Byrne's (Talking Heads) drummer Todd Turkisher. Paul Lansky (pioneer electronic artist, recently sampled by Radiohead) also lent a hand, and taught Fletcher the ropes in his Princeton studio. The band notably made the semifinals of a Max Martin (Backstreet Boys producer) songwriting contest, for their boy-band pop rendition, 'One Day Love.' Their songwriting talent was rewarded again, as they garnered the Overall Grand Prize for the Cooch Music's 6th Amateur Songwriting Contest for 'Be Leavin.' The two combined their acoustic songwriting style with their rock and roll roots with their massive 14 song debut album, Time Has Come, in 2002. Recently the band has joined up with their high school bandmate. Seizing Jeremy Antipolo to beat the drums, they have embarked on a tour of the Little Rock music scene, playing shows and booking studio time. Good things are in store from this talented team-- keep updated by checking their website for bits of wisdom and pictures and songs.
