!!! "Me & Giuliani Down By The Schoolyard (A True Story)"

Wow! If you're not familiar with !!!, then I suggest, right now, that you proceed to either Tone Vendor, Insound, Twee Kitten
or Parasol RIGHT THIS MINUTE and buy their debut album on Gold Standards Laboratory. They're a POWER HOUSE OF DANCE MUSIC OF THE HIGHEST DEGREE, mixing all of the best
parts of Prince, Public Image Limited, Gang of Four, P-Funk (all stages), KLF, and any other power-house of dance-ROCK. You WILL dance. You WILL do the Robot. And you WILL love it. Both songs on this single are at least nine minutes long, which should tell you something about how hard and long these guys are going to give it to you! They're still nearly a year away from releasing their second album (goodness, fellows, what's the holdup?), but this two-song teaser is worth seeking out if you don't want to commit to a full-length purchase. "Me & Giuliani Down By The Schoolyard (A True Story)" is a new song, enjoy it because it may be a while for new music; luckily, it's plenty to satisfy your !!! appetite. The other song, "Intensifieder (Sunracapellellectroshit Mix 03)" is a remix
of the full-length's best number, "Intensified" and, yes it's harder. A rough, sexy, sex-driven ride that's worth more in 19 minutes than many albums these days. Essential.
