Originally formed as a somewhat antagonistic answer to grunge, CAKE's democratic processes, defiant self-reliance, and lucid yet ever-inventive music has made them a nation-state unto themselves, with no obvious peers, belonging to no school. In addition to writing, arranging, producing, and performing their own music, they have taught themselves to engineer their recording projects in their solar-powered studio, which actually generates more power than is needed to run it, causing the building's electrical meter to run in reverse. CAKE's second studio album Fashion Nugget, originally released in 1996, reissued on 180 gram vinyl. Remastered audio of the 14-track album includes the hits "The Distance," "Frank Sinatra," and "I Will Survive".
