First Release on Rhino's New Cheap Date RecordsFeatures Revamped Tunes FromBreakfast Club, Valley Girl, Fast Times, Pretty In Pink, and Others

On October 20, 1998, Rhino Records launches its newly formed label, Cheap Date Records, with IN THEIR EYES: '90s TEEN BANDS VS. '80sTEEN MOVIES. Included on this disc are 15 of today's top alternativeteenage bands with new takes on classic songs from the era of John Hughes.IN THEIR EYES will be available in CD format only at a suggested list priceof $15.98 as well as through RhinoDirect at 1-800-432-0020.

IN THEIR EYES features such established performers as Ben Lee, The Donnas,The Gadjits, and The Stinky Puffs ("In Your Eyes"). While The Grown-Ups,Slimer, Phantom Planet, and The Rondelles have all issued discs, this CDwill launch these groups. Marigold ("If You Leave"), Dyslexic Crush ("AMillion Miles Away"), Oblivious ("Bring On The Dancing Horses"), F.O.N.("You Might Think"), and The Knock-Ups (a gender-bending version of "JohnnyAre You Queer" by this boy-fronted band) make their commercial debut on INTHEIR EYES. The music of Gen X will never be the same again.

While every city has its own teen heroes awaiting discovery, Cheap Datewent one step further to find those diamonds in the rough: intocyberspace. Throughout the month of June, the teen portion of AmericaOnline's Entertainment Asylum (Keyword: Teen Asylum) hosted "The Cheap DateVirtual Talent Show" which solicited demos from teen bands to fill thefinal spot on the compilation. The winner of this contest turned out to beright in our backyard: The English League from Los Angeles who contributesa a rap version of "Weird Science."

Liner notes for this package were penned by Jake Fogelnest, creator andhost of his own television show, Squirt TV - filmed from his bedroom `alaWayne's World - which had a stint on MTV after gaining noteriety on publicaccess. Well, he's all grown up now (18) and gives us a little insight onwhat it was like growing up in a time when all the classic '80s films wereavailable on video (making us all feel a little old).

"Cheap Date Records was founded by some fleet-footed, warm-hearted,good-looking, easily-excitable, able-bodied, fresh-faced,attention-deficited, smart-mouthed hooligan employees of Rhino Records whocame together one smoggy day to do something that needed doing," says EricKayser, Cheap Date's fearless leader. "We love Ferris Bueller. And PrettyIn Pink. And Say Anything. And The Breakfast Club. And Valley Girl. Wedecided to compile an album of today's teenagers spreading some love in theform of songs from our favorite '80s teen movies. Great songs, greatmovies. And now, great teenage bands doing these songs. Doesn't that justput the milk in your Cheerios? Us too."
