The Jimmy Cake formed as a ten-piece group in Dublin, Ireland in 2000 from the fresh remains of local experimental rock noise-niks Das Madman. In that time they have collaborated live with the likes of Damo Suzuki, Iva Bittova, and Charles Hayward while slowly drifting over the course of six albums from a pastoral psychedelia to full-on kosmische psych, fully realised on Master, their 2015 aural colossus. Drawing from the same sonic palette, Tough Love is another serpentine and ecstatic creation from one of Ireland's most consistently adventurous bands. Tough Love is the sixth studio album from experimental rock group The Jimmy Cake. Written in 2015 as a continuous piece for a one-off performance in The Joinery, a much-loved and badly-missed arts space in Dublin City, Tough Love is part kosmische post-punk dystopia, part time-lapsed motorik stoner rock. Both sides menace and swell, playing with time and space before building to two distinct strains of glorious sonic pay-off. "Thank God for The Jimmy Cake" --The Journal Of Music In Ireland (Review of Master). "In short, Master confirms The Jimmy Cake are this country's finest experimental rock band, hands down" --The Sunday Business Post (Review of Master). "Every city has one, a band that for some strange reason never really made it beyond its borders yet deserves to take over the world. Instead of being known for U2 or Westlife, Dublin should be known for The Jimmy Cake" --Brainwashed.com (Spectre & Crown Review)
