about

From angular art-rock to avant pop passages, Chicago’s CHEER-ACCIDENT strikes a powerful balance between deconstructive studio wizardry and the visceral excitement of a well-honed, explosive live rock band. In anticipation of the band’s perfomance at the 10th Anniversary of the reanimated RIO (Rock In Opposition) Festival this September, SKiN GRAFT is releasing newly
remastered special editions of two of the band’s greatest albums: "Salad Days" and " Trading Balloons".

New York’s Downtown Music Gallery writes:
“Salad Days” is a feel good masterpiece of expansive, hypnotic math rock and so much more from the 1997-1999 period of Cheer-Accident. The orchestration is incredible, with extended lush passages fading in and out of proggy grooves and heavenly weirdo sing-a-longs. To me it's like a math rock version of Hatfield and the North. It's really that amazing. There's no question it's a classic of avant-rock, demanding the attention of a wider audience.”

On "Trading Balloons":
Recorded just prior to “Salad Days”, and originally self-released by the band in a very limited edition, the 52 minute song “Trading Balloons” anticipated the direction the band would take in years to come - exploring a dizzying blend of musical styles: from Zeppelin-esque bombast to folk-tinged Americana to Stravinsky-flavored progressive rock to cinematic melodrama and beyond.

"SALAD DAYS : REMASTERED":
1. Graphic Depression / trt: 11:20
2. Insomnia / trt: 03:06
3. Graphic Depression / trt: 00:53
4. Post-Premature / trt: 02:09
5. Salad Days / trt: 18:51

H I G H L I G H T S :
o Both albums extensively remastered by Todd Rittmann of U.S. Maple and Dead Rider and redesigned by SKiN GRAFT Records' Mark Fischer.

o "Salad Days" recorded by Steve Albini and pressed on vinyl for the first time ever. Record includes randomly mixed Colored Vinyl LP and collectible wrap-around Obi.

o "Trading Balloons" receives its first ever commercial release! Guests on "Trading Balloons" include Bobby Conn and Darin Gray of Dazzling Killmen and Brise-Glace.

o CHEER-ACCIDENT will be touring the USA and EUROPE and will perform at France’s RIO Festival alongside GONG, ACID MOTHERS TEMPLE and FAUST this September.

P R E S S Q U O T E S :
“One of the most fascinating creative careers in the modern American
underground - in any medium. Imagine a confluence of the grandeur of Yes, the range of This Heat, the irreverence of Ween, the poignancy of Elliott Smith and the mischief of Andy Kaufman, and you’ll be getting close to the net effect of Cheer-Accident’smusical output since its formation in 1981.” - Signal To Noise

“Cheer-Accident are the quintessential Chicago post-rock band... a higher-brow variety of avant-rock that covers ground as diverse as falsetto vocal vignettes, orchestral dissonant horn lines, Van Dyke Parks-ian rainy-day pop, cubist piano compositions, ambient cinematic excursions, noise collages, free-form freakouts, and every kind of noodley and angular guitar manifestation possible.” - Pitchfork

“Cheer-Accident is worth deliberate investigation.” - NPR: Fresh Air
