Digitalis Purpurea is the botanic name of the Purple Foxglove, a plant symbol of temptation, pleasant but at the same time destructive. Traditionally the foxglove was used as medical plant but had also an obscure use, an overdose in fact is lethal. That's why it was called "devil's finger". Particularly Pi Greco chose the name referring to a poem by Giovanni Pascoli "Digitale Purpurea".
"30-hole and Fred Perry" is his newest production released through the renowned German label 'Danse Macabre Records' (www.dansemacabre-group.com). The first single is the title-track produced with the collaboration of the master sound-tech Ted Jensen.
