Cake Anyone?

Everyone loves Cake, but I think I may have overdone it.

It wasn’t until I bought the new super-duper, hi-res, super high material version that I realised I have six copies of the debut album. Overkill maybe, but you can never have enough Cake right?

Included here are the US, Canadian, UK releases and three from Japan – two of which include six extra tracks.

Now, when is that new re-release coming out again?

From the outside it looks like the regular 7-inch release of debut single ‘Obscurity Knocks’.

But when you slide the vinyl out – voilà – no labels!

All very strange.

Here’s the 4-track 12-inch version of debut single ‘Obscurity Knocks’ – a title which perhaps became a self-fulfilling prophecy for TCS.

The inner ring of the A-side is inscribed with the legend ‘Youthenasia’, and the title track is backed with ‘The Best Man’s Fall’, ‘Drunken Chorus’ and ‘Who’s He?’.
