Hailing from Tennessee, Cheap Time have been around in one incarnation or another since 2006. The nucleus of the band has always been Jeffrey Novak who writes and sings the songs as well as playing guitar and keyboards. The band began with Jemina Pearl and Nathan Vasquez from the band Be Your Own Pet rounding out the line up – theirs was a sound of a teen punk band with more attitude than musicianship, owing more than a little to early Redd Kross.</h4>

Recorded in Novak’s new home studio, Wallpaper Music is a perfect distillation of all the phases the band has effortlessly passed through to date. There are still the attitudinal punk moves and pop-damaged glam jams but this time around the come up with their most realized, cohesive record to date. Songs like “More Cigarettes” and “Another Time” are Aussie-esque punkers in an almost Saints-like vein. Tracks like “Underneath The Fruit Flies” show that Novak is finding a good medium here betwixt his punk tendencies and his desire to experiment. This latest installment should satisfy anyone who has been keeping track of this band’s trajectory and make them look forward to what might come next.

JamesPlaneWreck consists of singer/songwriter Aaron Smith, Shaun Shireman, Andrew Bagley and Shane Brown.Reformed in the summer of 2011. This continuation of premium rock and roll will proceed to give you what you need!
