Bressa Creeting Cake, Bressa Creeting Cake (1997)
I loved Bressa Creeting Cake – only saw them a small handful of times but such a great band. I remember reading about them, first formed as Breast Secreting Cake and then they took on these pseudonyms – becoming Joel “Bressa”, Geoff “Creeting” and Ed “Cake”. So Bressa Creeting Cake – all law firm-like. But what a great album this is – and was. A real treat to see it reissued on vinyl – I bought the CD many times over, replacing lost and scratched and stolen copies, buying it for friends. At one point I had one that stayed permanently in the car and one in the shelf inside the house (I didn’t even have a permanent CD player in the car, I had a discman that wasn’t affixed – I would balance it on my thigh while driving, if I braked hard or turned a corner sharply it would fall down onto the passenger side…) I was amazed when a copy of the brand new vinyl turned up on the doorstep care of Flying Nun. They almost always forget about me. I don’t think I’ve had a thing from them to review in two or three years, maybe longer…I gave up asking ages ago. So it was a total surprise to find this – and a brilliant one at that. I’ve never stopped loving this album, it’s never lost its appeal to me and I think it’s one of the finest, most unique Kiwi music releases in my lifetime. Also, the other thing that was cool was my wife actually bought me a copy of this for my birthday, so I was able to return that and get Massive Attack’s Mezzanine (from the same era). Another much needed addition to the collection too. BONUS!
