!!! Chk Chik Chick

(Gold Standard Labs)

Release date: Nov 29, 2000

On this, their self-titled debut for Gold Standard Laboratories, !!! trash the axiom that says bands influenced by angular post-punk must be populated by dour misanthropes who sport wallet photos of Ian Curtis. "If you're looking for a friend/You can kiss my ass!" Offer declares on "KooKooKa Fuk-U," and encourages suicide for -- wait for it -- someone else. Speaking of axioms, "There's No Fucking Rules, Dude" is !!!'s. The cut sounds like the meat of the Clash's "Straight to Hell" mixed with Queen's "Another One Bites the Dust" and dropped on to an indie rock bun; it makes a tasty sandwich for Radio 4 fans.
