Pie Warmer

Bio

At the end of 2005, Edmund Cake was in hospital - Te Whetu Tawera, a Mental Health ward in the grounds of Auckland Hospital. A few weeks into Ed’s treatment, Christmas in the Park took place in the Auckland Domain next door to the hospital. Ed’s former musical colleagues Goldenhorse took the stage and performed to a crowd of 250,000 people. Ed listened nervously to the music of Goldenhorse drift into his small hospital bedroom window.

The following night in the hospital common room, the entire Christmas show was replayed on TV. For two nights in a row, Ed was confronted with his musical past and was forced to contrast his grim hospitalisation with the inescapable success of his former colleagues. Ed had reached crossroads of sorts, and after being discharged he began his new musical venture: Pie Warmer - named after his medication that he described as being like, “a pie warmer; my brain’s not too hot, not too cold”.

The Fearsome Feeling album began production in the summer of 2005. Ed Cake assembled Pie Warmer: Jason Smith, Tamasin Taylor and Cole Goodley. The band began rehearsing at Platform Studios on Queen St, Auckland. Some of the songs rehearsed in this early period were written during Ed’s stay in hospital.

The album’s basic band tracks were recorded in four sessions, each session lasting only two hours. The subsequent overdubbing sprawled over several years.

Ed defines The Fearsome Feeling as love. 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.
