Flashback Friday | "Short Skirt/Long Jacket" - CAKE

CAKE formed in 1991 in Sacramento, California and became known for their distinctive sound owing to lead singer John McCrea's sarcastic lyrics and dead pan voice. This song, "Short Skirt/Long Jacket" is from their fourth album, Comfort Eagle, released in 2001 and their first major release (on Columnbia Records). This music video (below), is a time capsule for 2001, complete with bad haircuts, boxy suits and listening to music on a discman. Seems like large headphones have stood the test of time though.
