Synopsis

Album Description
Originally released in 1991, out of print for many years, and now considered a classic, Dumb-Ask by Chicago's mainstays Cheer-Accident has finally been re-availed (courtesy of Chicago's Pravda Archives imprint) to the public. Brilliantly engineered by Steve Albini in his basement studio, Dumb-Ask reveals Cheer-Accident at their most stripped down and aggressive. This bare-bones sonic attack, while remaining consistently spare and straightforward, never sacrifices Cheer-Accident's trademark inventiveness, Recorded before Nirvana's Nevermind and Slint's Spiderland, Dumb Ask serves as a vital historical document, placing Cheer-Accident in a sort of "alternative to the alternative" parallel universe that existed concurrently to the more "above-ground" bands nof the early nineties.

CD Reviews

Solid work from Chicago's obscure idiosyncratic geniuses
08/28/2003
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is not the definitive Cheer-Accident album, but it is worth purchasing if you have the opportunity and the means. DUMB ASK is slightly more straightforward than their other albums, but the album is still tinged with the odd time signatures and too-clever-for-their-own-good lyrical mantras found elsewhere in the Cheer-Accident catalog. The album has been reissued by Pravda Records, and thus devoted C-A fanatics can enjoy that portion of DUMB ASK which was inexplicably edited by way of fadeout on the Neat Metal edition."
