The Jimmy Cake: Dublin Gone, Everybody Dead

Sound — 10
The Jimmy Cake are a band from Dublin, Ireland. In 2003 they were set to be huge, taking up festival slots ahead of the likes of Snow Patrol, BellX1, Har-Mar Superstar and the Futureheads. And since then we havent heard a single thing from them. This was because they were not a band per-se. More an amalgamation of musicians from around the city who had one goal, to create a masterpiece! The band ended up consisting of 10 members but no singer. The album contained 8 tracks which all ran into each other like a single 40minute song. if your wondering what they sound like, think of Muse without any singing and with more variety.

The fact is that there is not a single word uttered on this album. It is just music, with no vocals to 'dilute' it.

Overall Impression — 10
This is an amzing album. It must have taken ages to record and produce it. Some of the stand-out tracks include 'Dead Fall Priest', 'Limestone Tiger', 'The Width Of The Black' and 'Wir Schlaffen Auf Dem Boden'. It's a pity that this was only a once off project because it was an amazing album. If you like Muse or The Mars Volta you should check this out.

    t actually wasn't a one-off project. The first album 'Brains' came out in 2001, 'Dublin Gone. Everybody Dead' in 2002, and the EP 'Superlady' followed in 2003. It has to be said too that The Jimmy Cake actually IS a band! That said, it has all but disappeared from public view over the last while. The reason for this is that a new album is planned for around September of this year. The recording and production of DGED took 10 days, by the way! Paul
