Everything from the lyrics to the musicianship to the vocals are less than average in execution. Although, I do have this positive thing to say about !!!, they work well for those of us who suffer from insomnia. The music is so derivative, played-out, unoriginal that it puts one to sleep.

I saw !!! live at the 2004 Coachella festival and was blown away. People were dancing frenetically to what was a mixture of disco and punk, and I could help but smile while listening. I had read the Pitchfork review on !!! and figured I'd get the single. I think that the song "Me and Giuliani Down by the School Yard" is worth it alone, a really banging track. I've got to get the full-length just released.

Because this disc is inexpensive I can't feel too ripped off but I still do a little. When I bought it I excitedly put it in the cd player only to discover some of the most indulgent, derivative music in indiedom this year.
First of all, I was very disappointed by this release musically. There are some ok beats but they're nothing even remotely orignal. It's all very cliche Chic basslines/disco/funk stuff. The music doesn't go anywhere either. The songs seem to last for nine minutes merely to last nine minutes.

Now the lyrics: they are some of the worst, most ridiculous, piece of trash lyrics I have ever heard. Pointless drivel, meaning precisely nothing, praising dance music and possibly (but I am not sure) attempting to criticize Rudy Giuliani. Anyone who found their way here to read this review would absolutely mock these drivel lyrics if they were coming out of the mouth of a Top 40 dance type or some booty hip hop singer, but since it's an indie band someone will defend them... And in all this I am only referring to the first track. The second is far too abysmal to even bother discussing.

And did I mention the band members apparently think they're very cute? From the ridiculous, postmodern band name to the pointless musical references in their songs, they are very cute, in a very lame, indie sort of way. As is most often the case, do not believe the hype... They should call themselves suck,suck,sucks. Avoid.

these guys rule. only one song, but picks up where the full length left off. the full length (gold standard label records - find it!) is something to behold. it just sticks in your bones. they draw from some great influences (sly stone, talking heads, sonic youth, clash) but they are so random together that it becomes something new and exciting and funky as hell! the songs are longer but they take the listener on a sonic funk trip, and by the end your head is feverish with rhythms and spaced-out guitars, aching for more. can we get a NYC live appearance please?

Comprised of several members from Out Hud, !!! are currently tearing up the scene with a style that is both disco and post-punk sounding. Having toured for quite some time, and gaining a dedicated following, this large group (containing 7 members) has released the precursor to the soon-to-be second full-length album. With no release date known, Me and Giuliani Down By the Schoolyard will have to suffice for now. The good news is that you get two tracks that both clock in at over 9-minutes a piece.
The title track begins with a "Run Like Hell" intro á la Pink Floyd, soon to be joined by bouncing bass riffs and no-wave style vocals from Nic Offer. Although there are vocals on this EP, they are fairly sparse over the course of the songs. Relying mostly on the bass and drums to set the pace, the guitar and keyboard effects are situated around them for mood. The second track, "Intensifieder," is a remix of a track off the bands debut self-titled album. This track is heavily weighed down by a processed deep-house beat, making it sound more like the remix it is than a proper song. The two songs, however, compliment each other very well in just a short matter of time.
With two songs that pretty much remain constant in subject matter, it's hard to make any assumptions as to the relevance of this EP. The union of these bands styles, however, is definitely something that should (and will) be explored further. We'll have to stand by patiently to see if the new !!! album will be as promising as Out Hud's 2002 release, S.T.R.E.E.T. D.A.D. My guess is that this EP is a pretty good indication of those possibilities.

The best single of 2003 and a throwaway remix track off theyre last LP. Should I give it 5 stars or 1? I guess I'll split the difference. Six bucks is deffiantely worth it though based on the strengthof the first track but i think that money would be better spent checking them out in concert, its suck a good time.

And how the heck would they be listed on Pollstar anyway?
Hell, I'm surprised I was able to find 'em on Amazon.com!
