Who the F is SantoGold?


so as you clearly have already noticed, the name of this post is "Who the F is SantoGold?" one may ask, "what kind of question is this? have the guys at ECO been living under a rock for the past year and a half, that they don't know who SantoGold is?" well here is the answer to your inquiries. the artist responsible for such '08 hits as the oh-so-popular banger L.E.S. Artists, Creator, Shove it, Lights Out, and many more has officially changed her recording name to SantiGold - clever, huh? Santi has even gone so far as to have already changed her myspace page - although santogold.net is still up and running under the old name.
it may seem like such a pointless name adjustment. here's the story; Santo Gold - a.k.a. Santo Rigatuso - is a B-More-based jeweler/filmmaker/huckster, who apparently may only be known for this infomercial - according to pitchfork - or the 1985 seemingly hard-to-handle fighter/alien/wrestling movie Blood Circus.
honestly, with such confusion, I could see why she'd want to change her name. who would want to go around being confused for the guy from Blood Circus? my guess though, is that with this new name change, her music is also going to change drastically.

here are some of my favorite SantoGold tracks. I can only hope that SantiGold is just as entertaining.
