The SIGIT | Music Artists on Indie Accent



The S.I.G.I.T. (The Super Insurgent Group of Intemperance Talent, often stylized as The SIGIT) is an Indonesian rock band based in Bandung, Indonesia. The band consists of Rektivianto "Rekti" Yoewono (vocals, guitar), Farri Icksan Wibisana (guitar), Aditya "Adit" Bagja Mulyana (bass), and Donar "Acil" Armando Ekana (drums). They have three studio albums and two EPs: Visible Idea of Perfection (2007) and Detourn (2014); The S.I.G.I.T. (2004) and the two-parted Hertz Dyslexia that was released separately in 2009 and 2011.
When asked about the origin of band's name, Rekti explained, "I was on the internet, with nothing to do, so I just had this silly thought about searching my name on Google. I thought, "What does 'Rekti' mean on other side of the world?" Then I decided to do the same with my father's name: Sigit. Then I found this website which was a science interests group's website and I thought it would be a cool name for the band then I worked on the abbreviation stand." The band later admitted that the idea of abbreviating the name came from Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, one of their influences.
They described themselves as hard rock band and often being compared to Wolfmother and The Datsuns. They were even dubbed as "The Indonesians answer to Wolfmother" by an Australian media.
