+CODA: (1:18:49) UNTIL IT ENDS by POP ZEUS [RIP MIKEY HODGES]
Hey everybuddy! 2014 was a crrrazy year of catharsis for me (a big move in August after being in the same place forever, and a sad/depressing cat death soon after moving in, among other things), with an insane amount of venue closings, some great amazing friends and associates involved in those closings.. Weird year. I spent a lot of the year listening to old CDs/records that were being decided upon to spend money moving to another house, or toss in the goodwill dumpster. Obviously my Genesis records made the cut.
Lots of good stuff though this year.. I always try to represent here great, perhaps underheard, stuff that either passed thru CS, or I just need you to hear. That, and every apparently every release on TROUBLE IN MIND. I left out a lot of records I truly also loved, because you love them too… (ANGEL OLSEN A++, SHARON VAN ETTEN A++, ARIEL PINK A++, FUCKED UP A++, PAINS OF BEING PURE AT HEART A++, NUDE BEACH A+++, LIARS A++, , MOUNT SHARP A++, PRINCE RUPERT’S DROPS A++, PROTOMARTYR OF COURSE A+++++, OBITUARY A+++++++++++), plus records I just couldn’t fit on this thing that deserve mention by PLAINS, PALE LIGHTS, DOUG TUTTLE, TEENANGER, ZULA, blah blah blah, your band, my band. I listen to a ton of shit you guys.
SPEAKING OF SHIT: LOVE ALWAYS AND FOREVER, things we lost this year that we really think the world of::::my cat and cake shop posterbaby Bryan Sapperstein-Hernandez–Long-Lang, Nash the Slash, Letha Rodman Melchoir, Christo Buffam, Glasslands, Vivian Girls, Death By Audio, Mikey Hodges, Joe Cocker, Bereket, my old apartment, Bobby Keys, Casey Kasem, Mike ichols, Peter Gutterridge, Jack Bruce, Ian McLagan, iPod classic, Bobby Womack, Scott Asheton, don Pardo, Goodbye Blue Monday, Jan Hooks, HR Giger, Rik Mayall, Joan Rivers, Roseland, Harold Ramis, Edward Herrmann, Ultimate Warrior, Dave Brockie, Joey Lacaze, Death Grips and the everyone/everything I forgot.
…2014 was a decent B+ year for CAKE SHOP, as always thanks to only you guys. Your patronage literally means our world and livelihood. As said before, the people who love us and get us are the best people in the entire universe, and we actually literally love you. Best to you and yours in the new year, truly from the bottom of our hearts. Here’s to a bright 2015.
-∂ß and everyone at CAKE SHOP and CAPE SHOK.
