Unclassics 41: !!! - Louden Up Now (Touch and Go/Warp, 2004)

genre: punk-funk revival

Which band calls itself by three exclamation marks? The one whose career is one big fuck you. The punk-funk revival in the middle of 00s seemed to be fun until I read Simon Reynolds book Rip It Off about post-punk and got hold of the originals. In the retrospect !!! are tolerable and this album might be the strongest one of the whole "movement". Unfortunately they never ever came close to the perfection of Me and Giuliani Down by the School Yard (A True Story), but a few bands of 00s did :) If you want more fun(k) and less politics, try their side project Out Hud.

Other recommended punk-funk revival albums:
Bloc Party - Silent Alarm
Foals - Antidote
Franz Ferdinand - Franz Ferdinand
The Rupture - Echoes
