Graeme Jefferies "Messages for the Cakekitchen" (1988)
LP (NEW) - Vinyl, Ally Records, US, 2021, ALLY 12-002, 634457035454, Limited Edition, Reissue
Messages for the Cakekitchen was originally released in 1988 on Flying Nun records. In the mid-80's with This Kind of Punishment split up and a new 4 track recorder, Graeme Jefferies hand-crafted this stunning album, a collection of close-up songs that are simultaneously dark, hopeful, weary, and uplifting. The seeds of all he's done since - solo and with his band Cakekitchen - were planted by this shrewd, sinewy album, whose ghostly strains burrow into your subconscious and sprout epiphanies. In his review for Spin Magazine, Byron Coley described Messages for the Cakekitchen as "a goddamn masterpiece".
