The Jimmy Cake
Since their formation in July 2000, Dublin 9-piece The Jimmy Cake have blazed a trail of experimental innovation leaving hoards of enthralled converts in their wake. Hailed by some critics as the most exciting live band and the most powerful musical force in Ireland The Jimmy Cake have recently gone into hiding to begin work on the follow up to 2003’s Superlady. The new material displays a more mature approach to song writing with the arrangements more complex and the melodies shimmering brighter than ever before. The Jimmy Cake maintained that this self imposed exile from the live circuit would only be compromised if they were asked to play a Belgian Mirror Tent that once played host to Marlene Dietrich. In a bizarre twist the Cake have been added to the Fringe Festival Spiegeltent line up and will play the Belgian Mirror tent that once played host to Marlene Dietrich on October 7th. With snippets from the forthcoming album to be premiered for those who make the journey and rumours of a brass band accompanying the Cake this promises to be a night of pure magic.


  • You should have mentioned the name of the band to me. I know them. I have one of their CDs, "Dublin Gone, Everybody Dead". I didn't realise they had a followup out.

    They're supposed to be incredible live.

  • One could probably make a groupie related "let them eat cake" joke here.

    But that wouldn't be in good taste...
