I miss the band Cake. The Distance. Never There. Short Skirt, Long Jacket. Their cover of I Will Survive. Apparently their lead guitarist and their bass player left the band at the end of the 90s to start a band called Deathray, but Cake still put out at least one good album after that (Comfort Eagle). It's been six years since their fifth album (Pressure Chief), which I missed completely. According to Wikipedia, they're putting out a new album this year that was recorded using only solar power, but the band's website seems to be down which is probably not a good sign.

Current Mood: BEN
Listening to: Cake - "The Distance"

Is it wrong that my first thought was "Maybe it got cloudy?"

While I was never a first tier fan of the band, I always enjoyed hearing new stuff from them on the radio.

Cake was one of my favorites in high school.

And onward. But I remember when The Distance was breath of fresh air in a sea of crap on the radio back then. I remember on a school trip once when I and this other girl sang Cake songs during the whole van ride because nothing good would play on the radio. :P

I've had a love/hate relationship with Cake. I liked what I heard, but it was overplayed by all my college friends to the point where I could hardly stand it.
