Just 2724 days since their last album, 2008’s highly acclaimed Spectre & Crown, The Jimmy Cake are already set to unleash Master, their epic & serpentine fourth record. Master is three compositions laid out over a 72-minute journey through space, time and a musty & secluded railway arch off North Strand Road, Dublin where engineer, producer & hero John Spud Murphy lost his mind but gained a twitch. Gone are the lush strings & understated beats of Spectre & Crown, replaced by vintage synths & psychedelic rhythms to create an ever-morphing, technicoloured behemoth of a record.
Available on CD, 180g double vinyl & download, Master is accompanied by blackly comical album artwork by UK illustrator & cult hero Jack Teagle & housed in a magnificently eccentric design by band member Paul G Smyth.
The Jimmy Cake will be accompanied on the night by a second drummer in the form of the legendary Charles Hayward of This Heat & Camberwell Now with support from the very mighty Twinkranes.
The Jimmy Cake With Guest Drummer Charles Hayward with support from Twinkranes Saturday 29th August Hangar, Andrew’s Lane
