an international band combining revolutionary politics and intelligent semi-acoustic avant-punk fervor. 'Private Poverty Speaks To The People Of The Party' was recorded with a group of players that have run the gauntlet of life experience and musical explorations and you can hear it in the vitality and urgency of the music. 'Private Poverty Speaks To The People Of The Party' still holds the same raw improvisational qualities of their debut recording, 'The Brutal Reality of Modern Brutality' (Edgetone Records). Straying from the typical notion of political commentary, Tsigoti delivers a clever, experimental, driving, AND fun accessible work of art that is true to the ESP mission: forward thinking and forever changing.

Tiny Mix Tapes:
TSIGOTI’s ESP-Disk Debut, Private Poverty Speaks To The People Of The Party, is an exercise in political debauchery and a forward vocal delivery of self-restraint from Thollem Mcdonas that comes a-swingin’ right out of the gate. Behind this lies the wiry, convulsive guitars of mastermind Jacopo Andreini that become the driving force of this quasi-punk anthem, while the rhythm section spends time deconstructing things down into No-Wave-esque breakdowns and pummeling, fluid drumming.
