admittedly i had a great newbie-themed cat picture, but this is too easy... besides, the new kid seems OK.
 
 wikipedia is your friend - do a search there for !!! (in general i find wiki to be a great resource for getting one-minute intros to bands).
 
 !!! is a good show, i recommend them (and the band playing the night before - LCD soundsystem) if you like bouncey, danceable music.

Months ago in the new release thread someone posted something like "New !!! out in [whatever month]." I wondered if the poster had meant  Neu! (German for "new")  since that band always wrote their name with an exclamation point and an announcement of new Neu! would indeed require multiple !!!!!!!!.

Speaking of Neu!, look what I just found:
 http://www.bigozine2.com/archive/ARrarities06/ARkwbremen.html
 
 
 this is indeed a recording of the rather short-lived lineup of Kraftwerk that includes
 Michael Rother and Klaus Dinger in its ranks! That's right - Neu! as part of Kraftwerk!!!
 Are you still reading? Why aren't you downloading instead?!  :p
 
 It's basically a whole CD of extended "side-long" jams in the style of the first
 Kraftwerk albums performed in front of a small but enthusiastic audience and broadcast
 on Bremen Radio in 1971. The members of Neu! really take a forward role here, with
 Rother's guitar driving things for most of the time and sounding quite rocking, with
 glimpses of his future soaring melodic sound in the extended jam passages. The guitar
 and drums are backed up by synth and I believe organ bass, with notable exceptions of
 flute taking the forefront on the great version of Ruckzack (from the first Kraftwerk
 LP) and is it distorted electric violin on K4? Maybe just Rother taking a violin bow
 to his guitar strings! Proto-Kraftwerk and proto-Neu! It's exciting stuff, and on top
 of that the sound quality is excellent - a professional radio recording.
 
 How has this recording not become better known over the past 35 years since it was
 made?! I don't know. It appears to be a newly released CDR edition with good-quality
 (but privately printed) packaging. Maybe it has stayed in the Radio Bremen archives
 until now? If you're sceptical about the authenticity I'm sure a listen will persuade
 you... and hearing someone in the crowd shout "Michael!" in the last second of the
 recording is the icing on the cake 8-)

It's ok. The last 1/3 is awesome. Few other decent songs; the rest, ehh.
