Speaking Like An Elephant

by Cheap Star

Cheap Star picks up where The Posies left off, writing perfect power pop with sublime harmonies and messy fuzz guitar that had gone acutely unreplicated until now. Speaking Like an Elephant is a total must-have. (

Album Notes
After having collaborated within various formations, Remi and Thomas formed Cheap Star few years ago, quickly joined by Vincent.
Elaborated on their 8 track, their first demo tapes drew the attention of artists such as Paul Chastain (Velvet Crush), Anthony Bautovitch (The Forresters, Orange Humble Band) and Ken Stringfellow (The Posies, Big Star, The Disciplines, R.E.M)
Their first album, entitled “Speaking Like an Elephant” was recorded and produced half by Ken Stringfellow, half by his Posies and Big Star’s partner in crime, Jon Auer.
On Jon Auer’s own words…
“It's really great pop, fresh - like Posies, Big Star, Teenage Fanclub, and Guided By Voices all rolled into one....One of the songs I produced, "You Got It All" is such a great slice of pop, so pure and...well, it reminds me of what I love about melodic pop in the first place...I produced "Louder as well, like the Byrds with a fuzz box...(and a little of "Flavor of the Month" in there as well!)"
Ken Stringfellow (The Posies, Big Star, R.E.M.)
"Cheap Star are unaware or perhaps unconcerned that they are always in the future and moving forward…the name is an unpretentious homage to giants of the past, but the musicians here are doing what we all attempt to do…chewing
up the green fields of the well trampled culture and growing woolly fabric for the modern age.
And it is all done gently, humbly, and with great beauty. And they are happy to return to the mulch after their work is done and feed the next thoughtful grazers…delicious."
Paul Chastain (Velvet Crush, Matthew Sweet)
"It sounds cool, nice songs. The singing reminds me a little of Teenage Fanclub and I think the songs come across pretty well. Sounds like you guys have a common vision about the music. Keep up the good work!"
Cheap Star has played with the likes of The Posies, Varsity Drag (Ben Deily, ex-Lemonheads), Pete Krebs, Jon Auer, The Boss Martians, Bezzewax.
