  • Summary: Search engines hate them, but !!! (pronounced "Chik Chik Chik," of course) are popular with live audiences for their funkier, dancier (yes, that's a word--trust us) approach to indie music. The Sacramento band shares three members with Out Hud, and this is their 2-song debut for Touch And Go (with a full album to follow in 2004). Expand

  1. The most wildly inventive, exploratory, unafraid, surprising, nonsensical, and flat out funkiest single I’ve heard all year.
  2. It's a funky spin on the dance-punk of late-'70s/early-'80s acts like Gang of Four. [6 Jun 2003, p.78]
  3. [A] nine-minute sprawling, shifting and landing tidal wave.
  4. Easily the crowning achievement of their short lifespan thus far.
  5. Like so many great singles of the past, this is the sound of a good band getting great. Don't miss the moment.
  6. The A-side sports some significant drive and heft. [Jul 2003, p.122]
  7. So New York. So everything. So new. But yet, so much like the hippies saying, "Man, if we could only get Nixon to smoke pot, then we'd have world peace, man."
