How can a band be impossible to google after four pretty successful albums? Call yourself !!! of course! It’s pronounced Chk Chk Chk according to most sources, and the workhorse likes what they do!
They’re new album is equally difficult to pronounce, but I guess it’s going to be THRILLER to most of use! I wonder what google will make of it? The album is out in late April,and there’s a taster below. Here’s what guitarist Mario Andreoni said about it.
[Update: For THR!!!ER Google gives you links to the MA Foster novel, The Ler. They really are pretty much ungoogle-able!]
“Over the course of many long van rides and post-coffee verbal riff sessions, Thriller didn’t merely come to represent the selling of a lot of records…it became synonymous with an artist(s)’ and/or genre(s)’ artistic high-watermark. INXS’ Kick is the Australian Thriller…Alanis’ Jagged Little Pill is the Canadian Thriller…Wham!’s Make It Big is the blow-dryer’s Thriller…every recording by the 13th Floor Elevators is the dosed-man’s Thriller…”Sister Ray” by the Velvet Underground is the Thriller of musical fever dreams. One day at the studio, Nic [Offer, vocalist] drew THR!!!ER on a napkin and I liked it…then we made our THR!!!ER.”
Even when the water’s cold!
