Background and history !!!_section_0

!!! !!!_sentence_11

is an American band formed in the fall of 1996 by the merger of members of the groups Black Liquorice and Popesmashers. !!!_sentence_12

After a successful joint tour, the two bands decided to mix the disco-funk with more aggressive sounds and integrate the hardcore singer Nic Offer from the Yah Mos. !!!_sentence_13

The band's name was inspired by the subtitles of the movie The Gods Must Be Crazy, in which the clicking sounds of the San people's Juǀʼhoan language were represented as "!". !!!_sentence_14

However, as the bandmembers themselves say, !!! !!!_sentence_15

is pronounced by repeating thrice any monosyllabic sound. !!!_sentence_16

"Chk Chk Chk" is the most common pronunciation, and the URL of their official website and the title of their Myspace page suggest it is the preferred pronunciation. !!!_sentence_17

The band's full-length debut record came out in 2000 as a self-titled album on the label Gold Standard Laboratories. !!!_sentence_18

This was followed in 2003 by the single "Me and Giuliani Down By the School Yard", a lengthy track combining house beats with sinewy basslines, psychedelic guitars, and simple lyrics which quote the title song of the musical Footloose. !!!_sentence_19

A second full-length, Louden Up Now, was released on Touch and Go in America and on Warp Records in Europe in June 2004. !!!_sentence_20

In June 2005 !!! !!!_sentence_21

released a new EP covering "Take Ecstasy with Me" by The Magnetic Fields, and "Get Up" by Nate Dogg. !!!_sentence_22

The following December, the original drummer for the band, Mikel Gius, was struck and killed by a car while riding his bike. !!!_sentence_23

They released their third album, Myth Takes in 2007. !!!_sentence_24

!!! !!!_sentence_25

is composed of Mario Andreoni (guitar), Dan Gorman (horns/percussion/keys), Nic Offer (vocals), Rafael Cohen (bass/various electronic devices), Chris Egan (drums) and Meah Pace (vocals). !!!_sentence_26

Vocalist and drummer John Pugh officially left the band in July 2007 to concentrate on his new band Free Blood. !!!_sentence_27

Vocalist Shannon Funchess stood in for Pugh during much of their 2007 tour. !!!_sentence_28

The band also shared membership with the similar, defunct group Out Hud (including Tyler Pope, who has played with LCD Soundsystem and written music for Cake). !!!_sentence_29
