Led by singer/guitarist Shane Faubert, the Cheepskates were a big part of the '80s revival of the garage rock scene on the East Coast. They released two albums with their first lineup, a four-piece that concentrated more on the retro side of the sound. By 1987, Faubert was ready for a new direction and scaled the band down to a three piece for the power pop releases Remember and It Wings Above. After a live album and a covers EP, they returned to the studio for one last time. The result, 1990's Confessional, was disappointing to listeners and the band alike, leading to the eventual dissolving of the group. A post-breakup album of Residents' songs found its way onto shelves in 1992, while Faubert continued in the same musical vein on his solo material. ~ Bradley Torreano~ Rovi
