Jaded In Chicago recently sat down with former Screeching Weasel guitarist Dan Vapid to talk about his new group, Dan Vapid And The Cheats.

In the interview, Vapid talks about how a one-time show in the place of the cancelled WeaselFest led to the formation of the band, which features ex-Methadones members Mike Byrne and Mike Soucy, and the recruited Simon Lamb.

The interview, which also covers more ground, including songwriting inspiration and the SXSW incident, can be read here.
