Limelight: Introducing Chicago avant-garde collective Cheer-Accident

Eccentric and avant-garde Chicago collective “keep moving” with album 18

Cheer-Accident’s founder Thymme Jones reckons he’s been obsessed with music from about as far back as he can remember. “I used to work myself into a frenzy listening to Zorba The Greek by Herb Alpert. I used to dance around the stool in our house when I was four years old. I was in love with the music,” recalls the drummer and multi-instrumentalist, speaking from his home in Chicago. It’s an ardour that shows no signs of cooling as the band release their 18th album and embark on a series of live dates.
