Review: Spigga Live at the Lucky Dog in Worchester, MA

UPDATE: For any who have read this already, I’m sorry for the broken links. I had a software issue that is now fixed. The mp3’s work now, the pics work now…Sigh.

(A brief disclaimer: I have known Gio for a long time, and used to do sound for one of his previous bands.)

It must be summertime – Spigga is on the East Coast! On Sunday Night (7/14/07), I went down to the Lucky Dog to see Spigga. These guys play a funked up mix of… Well, it’s always a challenge to describe what they do. The best way I could describe them is take Prince, David Bowie, Trent Reznor and George Clinton throw them in a blender, add a large amount of Latino/hispanic flavour, and hit pureé.

That night, the band was heading into their 3rd show in 24 hours, yet they still hit the stage with a ferocious level of energy.

This time around, they have new live drummer – Troy “Big Coston”, who plays the smallest kit I’ve seen outside of a jazz club. While his kit is small, his groove is monsterous!

The whole band was hot and tight – sounds like a porno, doesn’t it? But that’s kinda where Spigga’s music takes you. It’s insane music for dancing your booty off – and dancing is fucking with your clothes on.

Spigga makes you want to get down and dirty, and that’s a damned good thing!With Their Permission, here a four mp3’s for your listening pleasure. Feel Free to share them with your friends! Click the speaker to play the songs, and click the link to download them.

So I have music. Lots of music. And I want to turn you on to some of it. So every week (or so… you know how I am), I will share a song from some unsung musical hero of mine. Genres will be crossed, styles will be mixed. Hopefully horizons will be broadened.

Sidenote to any RIAA trolls: Most of what I will share here is from out of print records, and independent labels and bands, so don’t bother me with and pseudo legal babble shit. For the OOP stuff, release it. It does nothing sitting in a vault, and would cost you nearly nothing to offer for sale in a digital format. If I receive notice from a legitimate creator, I will respond in proper fashion.

The first up is a track from H.P. Zinker. You can find out more about them here, as well as download a few more tracks. The song is Called “Birch” and is from their album Mountains of Madness (buy it @ Amazon)

And as an added bonus, here’s an instrumental, with some of the best drumming I’ve ever encountered. Just tasty riff after riff.
