Radio show podcast – New Zealand musician Edmund Cake

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:

Downtown Puff by Edmund Cake

Bressa Creeting Cake by Bressa Creeting Cake

The Fearsome Feeling by Pie Warmer

Review The Velvet Underground @ Music Ad Lib

Music Ad Lib“, hosted by our own library staff music enthusiasts, will air on Saturday the 18th of April at 4.30pm on Access Radio 783AM. This month we will be delving into the dim and distant past to one of the most influential bands of the 20th century, The Velvet Underground. The band was formed in New York City in 1965, and lasted just five years and four albums. It was almost unknown outside of underground music circles until interest in the band’s music mushroomed throughout the 1970s and 1980s. The Velvet Underground continues to be discovered and loved by discerning music fans in each succeeding generation and our radio show will be concentrating on some of their lesser known material.
