Multi-instrumentalist Graeme Jefferies is the name behind one of New Zealand's fabled underground counterculture icons. His mainstay project, The Cakekitchen, has its roots firmly grounded in the pages of 1980's New Zealand garage storybook which featured countless innovative artists, all of which huddled under the umbrella of labels such as Flying Nun Records and Homestead Records.

This formation existed for roughly two and a half years, and these compositions were considered by many to be the height of the groups' creative potential, with musical comparisons to the early material by This Kind of Punishment what with pounding piano, maddening viola, numerous tape splices and oddball musical passages - along with several pieces recorded at home on a four track, lending a lo-fi, dark, and intimate feel to the album. Led by Jefferies' distinct baritone voice, the album is layered, complex, and darkly beautiful.

Long sought after by collectors and fans alike, 'World of Sand' has been out of print and difficult to obtain since its original pressing in 1991. Dais Records has reissued the album on vinyl in limited edition and in remastered editions of 500 copies making this album available once again to old fans while introducing these classics to new listeners.
