Wellington City Libraries has a monthly radio show on Radio Access. For an upcoming show (7 August, 4.00 – 4.30) we recently interviewed Edmund McWilliams (Ed Cake) writer of brilliantly skewed pop gems over the last 15 or so years. (Grab a preview of this show below)
His most recent release, The Fearsome Feeling was the last CD to be featured in Nick Bollinger’s ‘100 essential New Zealand albums.’
Here’s how it’s described on Pie Warmer’s Myspace page,
‘The album features songs about love, not love songs as such, but songs that blend ideas about love with fear, insanity, talkback radio, violence against children, death of a loved one, indecision, abandonment, fame, Michael King/motorcars.’
Listen to the entire interview – covered are 2 songs from each of Ed’s 3 albums so far and Ed’s views on his songs, music and the potential of percussive tap dancers!
Below are the albums featured in the show:
