ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
The Cheaters Club is a methadone-pop two piece recording project, three with the addition of the singer's ex-girlfriend Mariel (for whom most the songs are written) sharing vocal duties. The Cheaters Club breaks from previous molds to explore new territory, incorporating found-sound drumlines, sonic background washes, and somber melodies combined with catchy drumwork and samples galore. The vocals lean towards the soft-spoken narrative variety, while retaining prominence in the mix, and detail mostly small moments in failing relationships, those tiny but signifigant fragments that make up the whole picture.

"This six-song effort by the Cheater's Club spreads across a range of danceable beats and Joy Division-like desolation... The down-tempo beats provide a gothic sway that underpins this disc, while Eon's vocals are alternately mumbles you wish you could discern, sexy moans disguised as lyrics, or truly menacing threats... [Mariel's] vocals drip with a disaffected sensuality ...It's that raw emotion that Cheater's Club wants to expose. Most of us try to tuck it away and move on when things have been ugly, hoping that when things this bad happen to us it won't scar us indefinitely. Here, it's a quest to the marrow."
-Northeast Performer Magazine

"Darkly introspective, his Cheaters Club project is a heavy emotional experience that avoids the foot-stamping blame game sadly typical of such drunken, lovelorn mood pieces, going intead for a much deeper, self-aware soul spew... Unique and more cuttingly honest than most are wiling to get, these songs make for a surprisingly beautiful bum trip; the beats and basslines are occasionally summery, but the mood is always deep-freeze wintertime"
