Cake 1988. 12 PIECE 6
I came across this the other day as I was packing up my vinyl for my impending emigration. I don’t remember buying it and I know nothing about the band. There’s nothing on line either, except according to Discogs they did an album.
It’s on Birmingham based Cake records, so I assume, like everyone else they had on their roster, the band were from Birmingham. I must have bought this because it was cheap and on Cake, or maybe I picked it up at a gig. I went to so many gigs back then, I struggle to remember many of them.
So is it worth a listen? Well I quite like it. Nicely funky, and unlike the far superior Pigbros (also on Cake), reasonably well recorded. The remixed version is a very odd affair with lots of middle eastern percussion. The singer unfortunately is pretty awful, but even that fits with the late 80s indie thing.
