!!! (Chk Chk Chk) - “Must Be The Moon”
I finally saw !!! tonight after loving them for years. Myth Takes is one of my favorite records, and “Must Be The Moon” is still one of my favorite songs. Sure, it’s just about partying/getting laid, but it immediately makes its ambitions known and fulfills them perfectly. It doesn’t go over the top or try to hide anything; everything is precisely at face value, and that’s what makes it work. Because this is !!! we’re talking about, there’s a nasty, hard-to-forget bassline that really pushes it to the next level. Also, the 12” art is a comic strip of the lyrics, which is really cool—I remember that being one of the first things I bought at Grimey’s when I moved to Nashville.
