On Dec 17, 2005 Anthony Mikel Gius was struck and
killed by a car while riding his bike. Mike was the
original drummer for !!!, helping start the band back
in the fall of '96.
I met him when I was 8 after a mutual friend told me I
"had to meet the other guy in the neighborhood withmore Kiss posters than
you". We quickly became best
friends and went on to share the most significanttimes of our lives
together...family vacations,puberty, crushes, loves, mixtapes, illicit
dancing, air guitar/drums, acutal guitar/drums, bands,
He was a straight prodigy on the drums; we played "tom
sawyer" and "for whom the bell tolls" from start to
finish the first day he got them...spoiled me for
life. He had a unique, occasionally overwhelming
style that coincided with the way he lived his life.
No matter what you thought of him, he made bands, some
ordinary, some not so, worth paying attention to.
We grew apart as our passions led us down different
paths. I still love him like a brother and miss him terribly.
These are recordings with Mike that people canhear/obtain without
exerting too much effort.
- The Yahmos - Off Your Parents 7" (available on Moo-La-La Records)
- The Yahmos - Undefeated LP (Gern Blandsten Records)
- The Popesmashers - This Is A Test 7" (Sunney Sindicut Records)
- !!! - s/t 7" (Sound Virus Records)
- !!!/Outhud split 12" (GSL/Zum records)
A new single is coming out on June 7th! It's two cover tunes: "Take Ecstasy With Me," originally by the Magnetic Fields coupled with "Get Up," originally by Nate Dogg. Sound samples and images are already in the Music section.
Nic says, "We decided to try some different styles before we bagan writing the next album to teach ourselves something new. We learned a lot from trying to make a pop song, using a string quartet and generally trying to make a song for people to lose their shit to on drugs. The Magnetic Fields song is great because it replaces sex, drugs and rock n' roll with Love, XTC, and House Music. The 90's and 2000's were nothing without Nate Dogg's voice and we believe someday, he will be recognized as one of the true greats of soul. This song is unjustly overlooked and can be found in dollar bins across America. So slept on, so slept on."
"HELP!!! I'M BEING REPRESSED!!!" Also if you're looking around in the shops you might notice our first single: "The Disease"/"The Funky Branca" has been reissued. You can pester the people at Sound Virus whilest supplies lasteth.
Check out some hot photos at !!! member Allan Wilson's blog at http://theschnauzer.blogspot.com/. He promises to keep them up to date.

People keep asking where to get the Live Live Live EP and unfortunately it's only a Japanese release at the moment. Hopefully that will change but for now, start making friends in Tokyo.
Japanese fans can look for the new Live Live Live EP - it features three tracks recorded live at the Liquid Room in Japan in July, one track recorded live for the BBC in the UK, and that LFO remix of "Me and Giuliani" which originally appeared on a super limited 12" single, long gone. Sound samples and images are available in the music page.
"HELLO? IS THIS THING ON????"
The single is scheduled for release on July 27th, once again by Touch & Go in the USA and Warp in the UK. A video is now available of the song and can be watched right here.

limited 12" vinyl.
The LP/CD drops 6/8/04
