Introducing BAkeR: EP 'Eternal Now' out February 26th

24 January 2023 - 0 Comments

As BAkeR, Mike Baker is new to the Zealand Music scene. However in his previous endeavours, he has quite a history.

BAkeR has spent many years in the music and restaurant scenes in both New Zealand and Australia.

In the beginning (the early to mid 80's) he ran the import/export division of Australia's Hot Records, working with legendary artists such as The Triffids, Celibate Rifles and Laughing Clowns.

Upon his return to New Zealand, he joined NRA (aka Not Really Anything) and in 1988 the band released the Mud Babies album, which was very popular on student radio.

Baker moved back to Sydney is 1990, managing much-loved Sydney band Glide during the release of their first three EPs, Pretty Mouth, Shuffle off to Buffalo and Wake. (There is a Glide documentary currently in the works).

For the rest of the 1990's, he trained as a chef and ended up as Head Chef at the Corner Hotel in Melbourne, but kept a hand in the entertainment sphere, cooking for the White Stripes, Dandy Warhols, Henry Rollins, Boss Hogg, Lloyd Cole and many others.

At the beginning of last year, BAkeR started recording his EP Eternal Now, with Daniel Hewson (the son of the late Paul Hewson of Dragon), who recorded, and played bass on the EP.
