Crookt, Crackt, or Fly is a 1994 album by Gastr del Sol released on Drag City. The album was written and performed by David Grubbs and Jim O'Rourke, with John McEntire (percussion), Steve Butters (percussion) and Gene Coleman (Bass Clarinet) also contributing. All tracks were recorded by Brian Paulson in October 1993 at King Size studios.

The band The Sea and Cake derived their name from a willful reinterpretation of the song "The C in Cake" based on misheard lyrics.
