!!! – Hello? Is This Thing On?

Since their birth at a party in Sacramento in back ’96 from the ashes of The Yah Mos and including members of Outhud, !!! have been forcing rockers to dance to tracks like the brilliant ‘There’s No Fucking Rules, Dude’ and the inspired rant on New York’s cabaret laws “Me and Giuliani down by the Schoolyard (A True Story)” as well as their eponymous debut album (Buy it from Amazon). More recently they have signed to Warp, the bastions of left-field electronica, and have a new album ‘Louden Up Now’ out now.

!!!’s sound is a collision of punk, dub and house more commonly associated with bands like The Rapture, LCD Soundsystem or anything on New York’s DFA label. The sounds are all familiar but the combinations are always fresh and funky. The fusion has created something more than the sum of its parts; party music with depth, which is no mean feat.
