About The Cadets

There are at least four bands with the name The Cadets.

1) Responsible for the songs "Pax Cadetia", "Cowford-Promised Prince", etc:

The first thing you should know about the Cadets is that frontman and lyricist Chuck Smyth sings like a throttled cat. Cadets songs, all penned by Smyth with the help of drummer Cash Carter and a rotating cast of their friends and cohorts, draw comparison to the more cheerful, lyrical Polvo compositions, or to the frenzied later work of Man...Or Astroman?, or to a lobotomized, tone-deaf Neil Young on amphetamines, or to a collaboration between Fred Rogers, the Minutemen, and bathing African elephants.

The second thing you should know about the Cadets is that they're from Jacksonville, Florida. Yawn, right? Another obscure band from a boring, blight-stricken sprawl town. Nothing new there. But the Cadets know this and revel in it, sucking up the mundaneness and spitting out something none of them knew they, or anyone stuck in the paralyzing void of a hinterland Jacksonville adolescence, had in them.

Chuck's lyrics channel Walt Whitman, William Faulkner, and the accidental genius behind PBS kids' shows and nature documentaries. In another slightly-different universe, Chuck is a prime contender for Poet Laureate of the Shopping Center South; the subjects of his verse-form contortions masquerading as songs range from morose, creepily Christian-tinged dirges about children dying in boating accidents ("Corpus Christi") to yelping anthems of friendship and determination ("Threat of Winds", "Pax Cadetia.")

2) London rock band responsible for the songs "Disco Lights" and "Falling", who recently changed their name to Slides.

3) Responsible for "Stranded in the Jungle", etc.

4) The Cadets are also a Division I drum and bugle corps based out of Allentown, Pennsylvania.
