Los Angelesâ favorite bilingual funk-dance-rock duo Spigga are gearing up for a series of West Coast dates in support of their just-released album â06105: The Mixtapeâ (Supermercado23/Navarre Corp.) Making music for iPods that ache to be boomboxes, Spigga is led by modern day renaissance man Giovanny Blanco (host/producer of the popular âLATV Liveâ program; former double-time doing frontman of Latin punk merrymakers Viva Malpache). The group is rounded out by Blancoâs collaborator Jaswho?, a house music master (Soulmine Records) who brings ample grooves to the Spigga table. Friends and musical collaborators since they met in Hartford Public High School back in the late 80âs, California transplants Blanco and Jaswho? named the album â06105â as a shout-out to their Connecticut hometown.
Spigga are continuing to make waves for themselves, most recently with their bilingual cover of âPeople of the Sunâ for the new Rage Against the Machine tribute album âTributo a Rage Against the Machine en Espanolâ. The track was recently named a âPrioridad Discograficaâ by Radio & Records magazine. Selected as the first single for the album (it also appears on Spiggaâs own album), Spigga have created two brilliant and off-the-wall videos for the single, as well as commissioned seven remixes performed by Nova of NYCâs Pacha Massive and BradElectro from SF among others.
Spigga are also indie favorites of a growing number of music supervisors, with the song âPapa Knowsâ landing on FX Networksâ The Shield, as well as the films âSee Jane Runâ, âFirst Snowâ and 'Steve-O's Wild Weekend'. When asked to describe his groupâs appeal, Blanco comments âItâs quite simple, weâre a taco truck version of Hall and Oates. Ghetto Muzak.â
Performing as a full six piece band at its live shows, the internationally-flavored act includes members from the Dominican Republic, Nicaragua, Ireland, Mexico, Oakland, and New Jersey. SPIGGA, unsatisfied with the taste of the current music scene, have decided to create their own flavor. Un mundo with no boundaries. Where funk and rock collide, house and industrial reside with soul and garage goofiness. Drum and bass becomes guitars, drum and bass, but el sancocho doesn't stop there. SPIGGA is multilingual (ooohh, sexy), with songs in English and Spanish and other idioms as soon as they can learn how to say "booty" in other tongues. SPIGGA's odd lyrical content can best be described as Maniacodepresivopsychosexual. Happy and ready to party one second and sad or angry and ready to kick your ass in the next. Who said sex and politics don't mix? A person who's never had arroz con pollo with corn bread, that's who.
SPIGGA is comprised of dos intergalactic mofo's. JASWHO?, a SF house music master (Soulmine Records) who's spent some time with funk rock (Argonaut) and reggae (Cool Runnnings), and GIOVANNY BLANCO, whose experience includes industrial (Liquid Circus), funk (G-Men) and currently Latin Rock with L.A. faves, Viva Malpache! Together, these two throw down some crazy ass shit. There, I said it. Watcha gonna do 'bout it? (subliminal message: listen to the music)
As for the name, it's all about taking stereotypes and labels, adding your own condiments (we prefer picante) and flipping the script. Hell, that pretty much describes the band.
A little electronic, a little rock and a whole lotta funk in english and spanish, 'cause two tongues are better than one.
Wouldn't you like to be a SPIGGA, too? C'mon...
