Melodramatic Pop / Ambient / Live-Elektronik - New York, USA


 "!!!" (Chk Chk Chk) members Nic Offer (vocals), Jerry Fuchs (drums), John Pugh (vocals & perc), Allan Wilson (perc, synth, sax), Mario Andreoni (guitar), Tyler Pope (guitar), Justin Van Der Volgen (bass) and Dan Gorman (perc, synth) like to push their own limits. At times, this requires rigorous physical training. Rehearsing their third album "Myth Takes" in a rented house on the 'wrong side' of Nashville, the band began each day with a strict exercise regime. “We all lived in this huge empty house” remembers Nic. “Every morning we'd do a kung-fu workout, and after that we'd jam all afternoon and night. I think the neighbours thought we were a cult or something. One time the postman walked up to the door when we were all in the living room, in our short shorts, chanting and contorted into these weird sweaty positions. It worked, though: don´t mess with the magic”.

Nowhere is the magic more obvious than on stage. Formed in 1996 to play the all-night party scene in Sacramento, California, they´re still easily one of the most exciting live acts in the world. A 2006 UK arena tour supporting Red Hot Chili Peppers helped the band to further hone their performing skills. “We learnt that to play shows that big, you have to make the hooks hit harder.. I could feel us getting better every night”.!!! members Nic Offer (vox), Jerry Fuchs (drums), John Pugh (vox & perc), Allan Wilson (perc, synth, sax), Mario Andreoni (git), Tyler Pope (git), Justin Van Der Volgen (bass) and Dan Gorman (perc, synth) like to push their own limits.
