These days The Cakes are an occasional activity that occur when we all happen to be in the same place at the same time with instruments.
SUPER AMAZING NEWS! The Cakes were in the same place at the same time with instruments recently, and recorded a new EP, Believe in Bacon. Download it for free here: Believe in Bacon on Bandcamp or from Soundcloud
What do The Cakes sound like? Various words have been used; quirky, indie-rock, danceable, post-punk, catchy, pop, fun, The Clash beheading Spandau Ballet. Various bands have been mentioned; The Clash, Flock of Seagulls (from the cool to the totally uncool in two bands), Pixies, Boy Kill Boy, The Killers, Feeder, New Order, Joy Division, Placebo, Blur, Pulp, B-52's, Queens of the Stone Age...
There have been numerous stories of how The Cakes came to be a band, but the most likely is that they met in Kendal, Eccles, the Black Forest, Pineapple Upside-Down or Leamington Spa at a book signing of "Bluegrass: An Alternative History of Caravans, Campfires and Unnessecarily Long Book Titles".
