DRN vs The Jimmy Cake

March 11, 2008

No not a mash up….but there’s an idea!

They are verse each other though since they both have a gig on the 18th of April.  It’s not looking like I can make either but that saves me the heartache of which one to choose- I have seen both recently and they are equally brilliant live.  

Dark Room Notes


They will be in The Village and tickets are €14 – available from

The Jimmy Cake


Via a bulletin :

This is the news: Spectre & Crown / Album launch / New trax

The first album from The Jimmy Cake in over 5 years, Spectre & Crown, will be released in Ireland on the Friday 11 April 2008 (oh my God, that’s this year!)

To launch the album, The Jimmy Cake will be playing in The Button Factory in Dublin’s Temple Bar on Friday 18th April (also this year), with special guests to be announced.

Three tracks from the album are now on our MySpace page, as a bit of a sneak preview: Jetta’s Palace | Haunted Candle (previously known as My Brass Buttons, in case anyone’s confused) | Collapsing Cloud Night At The Starry Sky

That’s the lot for now.
So, hopefully we’ll see you soon!
