What’s In a Name?

RIP “Tom Csatari Band”. My first two albums have been redistributed under my birth-name “Tom Csatari” — to avoid confusion — and much of my “content” will be released under the artistic banner “Uncivilized”, published by UncivMusic (ASCAP). See below for links, as well as two FREE, self-released “Singles” from a forthcoming Uncivilized studio album, release details TBA.







Uncivilized Reviewed in New York Times

NYT Uncivilized Review


A recent show by my band “Uncivilized” was reviewed by Ben Ratliff in the New York Times on October 30th, 2015:


“carefully layered”

“organized dissonance, loose concision, meticulous roughness — which makes it special.”

“[a] fuzzy, folky, big-hearted thing”

“This is a band that knows its history, even if it wears it lightly.”

Vacant Lots, Outro Waltz, and Summer Shows

Hey web-peeps! Here are some updates regarding my latest musical endeavors — enjoy!


1. A new music video from the longest track I’ve ever recorded,”Uncivilized” (not to be confused with the album of the same name which was released last year). It’s a collection of video clips from 35 different vacant lots in Brooklyn which I filmed in a single day on my iPhone:
