The Cakes (A Band)

The Cakes are a band from Staffordshire, England who enjoy making music together when they're in the same place at the same time with instruments. When they don't have instruments they're at a loss for what to do and stare at each other blankly.

The music is usually lighthearted and fun, but occasionally dark...like The Clash tickling Spandau Ballet and accidentally beheading them.

"The Cakes are edgy, acerbic and a darn sight more original than their somewhat distracting cake compulsion might suggest." - High Voltage Magazine

"Destined for greatness." - S4C live review (yeah, from a long time ago)

"Slightly too good." - Adrian Chiles, BBC Radio 5

"Short, sharp shots of urgent indie rock pop with plenty of hooks."

"Mothers Against Bacon is an awfully named EP with laughable artwork that thankfully redeems itself with its content." - Sandman Magazine

"A greatly danceable floor filler..." - Sandman Magazine on Dance Keith, Dance
