Biography

There are two Bands called The Cakes.

1) post-punk band from Stoke-on-Trent
2) punk rock from Elmshorn (Germany)

1. The first are a post-punk band from Stoke-on-Trent, who someone once wrote “make fun songs and catchy tunes” and someone else, “short, sharp shots of urgent indie rock pop with plenty of hooks”, and another person “edgy, acerbic and a darn sight more original than their somewhat distracting cake compulsion.” The cake compulsion has become a bacon compulsion; one band member even suggested changing their name to The Cake Bacons. He was laughed at, although the new EP is called Mothers Against Bacon.

Mothers Against Bacon was recorded after the band had a brief spell as Relocate My Satellites, and what seemed like a lengthier absence due to bodily injuries and other commitments. Returning to action in 2008, The Cakes recorded three new tracks in a former nuclear bunker in August of the same year. These tracks comprise the Mothers Against Bacon EP, which will hopefully be released on CD in 2009. If someone gives them enough money to make an album, they will.

2. The other “The Cakes” are from Elmshorn (Germany). They play Punkrock.
