Profile
Cheer-Accident is an American indie rock ensemble headed by Thymme Jones. Jones took the name of the band from a Hallmark Cards shopping display, and first formed the group in 1981 with singer Jim Drummond and drummer Mike Greenlees. In recent years, their music has moved from eccentric art-pop into more progressive territory, but just about anything is fair game for this eclectic band.
