Gli ESG sono un gruppo newyorkese no wave nato nei primi anni 80. Gli ESG hanno influenzato molti generi musicali tra cui hip hop, post-punk, disco e dance punk.
La band originariamente era formata da le sorelle Scroggins, Renee (voce), Valerie (percussioni), Deborah (basso) e Marie (conga, voce) e l’amico Tito Libran (conga. voce). La musica degli ESG è concentrata su poliritmi. Il loro primo EP omonimo, prodotto da Martin Hannett, conosciuto per aver prodotto gran parte della discogafia dei Joy Division, usci nel 1981. Nel 1983 usci il loro primo album, Come Away with ESG. I lavori del gruppo raggiunsero la popolarità poiché molti artisti hip-hop campionarono i loro brani.
ESG (Emerald, Sapphire and Gold) is an American band that emerged from the South Bronx, New York, in the early 1980s. Trouser Press called it “one of the most dynamic bands that New York could offer at the top of the ’80s. ESG has been influential across a wide range of musical genres, including hip hop, post-punk, disco, and dance-punk.
The band originally consisted of the Scroggins sisters, Renee (vocals), Valerie (drums), Deborah (bass) and Marie (congas, vocals) and friend Tito Libran (congas, vocals). A later incarnation of the band consisted of Renee (guitar, vocals), Marie (percussion, vocals), Valerie Scroggins (drums), David Miles (guitar) and Leroy Glover (bass), Chistelle Polite (vocals), Nicholas Nicholas (vocals/percussion) and Nicole Nicholas (bass/vocals). ESG’s music is centered around complex polyrhythms, a funky bass and pop-flavored guitar.
During their first incarnation, the group signed with 99 Records and the self-titled 1981 EP of three live (recorded at Hurrah) and three studio songs, the latter produced by English post-punk producer Martin Hannett. A 7″ of “You’re No Good” was released by Factory Records in the UK. 1982’s ESG Says Dance to the Beat of the Moody EP continued in a similar vein, as did their first album, 1983’s Come Away with ESG.
ESG disbanded shortly after, but re-formed in the early ’90s, heralding their comeback with a self-titled 1991 compilation of previously released material. The group’s work had become popular, mainly among hip-hop artists searching for samples, with such acts as TLC, the Wu-Tang Clan, Kool Moe Dee, the Beastie Boys, Big Daddy Kane, Gang Starr, Junior Mafia, Tricky, Jay-Dee, as well as indie rockers like Unrest and Liars all sampling the group. The group addressed this issue on the 1992 12″ EP Sample Credits Don’t Pay Our Bills. The album, ESG Live!, was released in 1995 and featured both old and new material.
