Sophomore Album Reissued on 180g Vinyl LP!
Featuring "The Distance", "Frank Sinatra" & "I Will Survive"!
CAKE's second studio album Fashion Nugget, originally released in 1996, is reissued on 180 gram black vinyl. Remastered audio of the 14-track album includes hits "The Distance", "Frank Sinatra" and a cover of Gloria Gaynor's "I Will Survive".
Originally formed as a somewhat antagonistic answer to grunge, CAKE's democratic processes, defiant self-reliance, and lucid yet ever-inventive music has made them a nation-state unto themselves, with no obvious peers, belonging to no school. In addition to writing, arranging, producing, and performing their own music, they have taught themselves to engineer their recording projects in their solar-powered studio, which actually generates more power than is needed to run it, causing the building's electrical meter to run in reverse.
an unconventional group prone to slapping trumpet solos over sparse, lo-fi arrangements underpinned by a funky rhythm section and ominous electric guitar tones.
All rhythmic, melodic and stylistic variance, Fashion Nugget plays like the diary of a band of musical gypsies just back from a groove-hunting expedition.
