My good bro Joe Finnochio produced, engineered, and kicked down this, the 5-song debut EP from SF locals Tigon. It's some really great, crazy shit, frenetic as Hell and loud as fuck, bringing to mind a thrashed-up take on The Jesus Lizard's post-rock angularities. This is a young band with a lot of potential, and I would not be surprised at all to see them with some strong label support sometime soon. If you like your jams weird, harsh, and freaky, check Tigon out now, before you've gotta pay 20 bucks to see 'em at The Independent. Nice work, Joe, and nice work, Tigon. This shit RULES.
