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. By the time the band recorded their debut album the line up had changed completely and, in addition to improved musicianship, Novak brought in influences of 70’s glam and power pop bands like Sparks and The Quick. The band followed this up with more line up changes and a sophomore album, Fantastic Explanations (and Similar Situations), that was darker, moodier and more complex than it’s predecessor.
