Cake with guests: The Lovemakers
Cake has always attracted the kind of ecstatic response most newcomers only dream of and seasoned veterans justifiably envy. Their sound freely mixes and matches pastiches of widely varying genres -- white-boy funk, hip-hop, country, new wave pop, jazz, college rock, and guitar rock -- with a particular delight in the clashes that result. Their songs are filled with lyrical non sequiturs, pop-culture references, and smirky satire, all delivered with bone-dry detachment by speak-singing frontman John McCrea.
