CHICK CUBED:

!!! On World Cafe (NPR, 3/08/11)

With its eight members calling diverse music scenes (New York, Sacramento and Portland) home, !!! is a dance-punk band that isn't afraid to get down and dirty — and also isn't afraid to mix things up. Pronounced "chk chk chk", this group has been on the radar of fans and critics alike since 2000, with the release of their eponymous debut. Taking their name from the movie The Gods Must Be Crazy, the !!! stand for Bushmen's clicking—though band members say that the three exclamation marks can stand for three sounds of any kind, such as Pow Pow Pow, Bam Bam Bam, or Uh Uh Uh. Very fitting for a band all about the beats.
