The Jimmy Cake - Brains (2001)

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket
Live, this 9 piece Irish Instrumental band "The Jimmy Cake" always rode the crest of a wave, brilliant, epic, euphoric but you never knew if each song would collapse into an noisy messy abrupt end. But that was always part of charm of a the Jimmy Cake gig. The ramshackle affair of having 9 musicians on the same surf board on a 60 foot wave.
Their debut is a bona fide classic in my eyes, up there with Godspeed's f♯a♯∞ and after a 2year hiatus they are back and i was luck to see them play a secret(ish) gig last November, where they unleash two new songs to the world. So here's hoping for the future and enjoy their 1st and best album so far.

I've been instructed to start this comment saying "I was Googling my own bandname when...", but I've dacided to just say that we're mixing the next album right-now-this-second, and it'll be out in September. So there! Paul Jimmy Cake.

PCS gets it's 1st "Scoop". I feel like Danny deVito in L.A. Confidential. Great news and can't wait. One of the new songs (The number with the accordian player joining you on the keyboard) might be one of the greatest Jimmy Cake song written. So heres to the future.
