Pancakes Anyone?

Head East's "A Different Kind Of Crazy" released in October 1979 depicts pancakes floating in the air, which proved to be a premonition of things to come. Just six months later on April 12, 1980 at Kansas State College in Kearney, Nebraska, the band threw pancakes out to the audience during the encore of the show. This was the last concert featuring the classic line-up of Roger Boyd, Steve Huston, John Schlitt, Mike Somerville, and Dan Birney that had released five studio albums and one double live album from 1975 to 1979.

Head East first used the breakfast / pancake theme on their 1975 debut album "Flat As A Pancake", the title being inspired by the flat Illinois landscape which was home to the band members. A survey conducted in 2012 by researchers at the University of Kansas found that Illinois is in fact the second flattest state in the nation, with the honor of flattest state going to Florida.
