Fans of power-pop infused punk rock didn’t have a lot of time to lament the death of the Methadones and the Riverdales (one can only assume the demise of the latter based on the tumultuous relationship between Dan Vapid and Ben Weasel). Wasting little time after the notorious SXSW incident that saw the entire rhythm section of Screeching Weasel resign, Vapid re-teamed with former Methadones drummer and guitarist Mike Soucy and Mike Byrne, respectively, as well as ex-Screeching Weasel/Riverdales bassist Simon Lamb to form Dan Vapid And the Cheats. Initially playing sets comprised of a veritable “greatest hits” of Vapid’s songwriting efforts from the Riverdales, the Methadones, the Mopes and more, the band has gone on to write original material and self-release their debut album a little over a year after forming.
