That's a wrap, folks. After over a decade of service, Tampa gutter calypso collective Johnny Cakes and the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypso are putting themselves down.

“This isn't a fake ‘going out of business sale,’ we are really done.” frontman Michael Middlebrooks told CL in a recent interview. “There will be no reunion. This is the Apocalypso.”
