She looked sassy, she thought, as she swung her long jet hair, careful not to dislodge the jasmine.

Natalie Fox, Love or Nothing. Amazon

The daughters of Sgt Pepper, these three hip and sassy NYC girls wrote and performed baroque folk, psychedelic madrigals and blue-eyed soul with rock attitude. The Cake were formed in 1966 and baked by '68 but stayed fresh and way ahead of their time.

Chris Campion, The Observer, 15 July 2007. Observer

Bruce Diones, The New Yorker, 13 March 2006. The New Yorker
