!!! (Chk Chk Chk) – Shake The Shudder
!!! have been plundering the space where post-punk meets dance for 20 years. Recent albums have shed the attitude and focused on a more radio-friendly sound. Absolutely superb in their live shows, their label Warp will be hoping that this will be “the one” to at last seriously bother the charts.
