Electric Cake Salad
BAND / ARTIST
ELECTRIC CAKE SALAD are an alternative/electro/ rock band from the Midlands. The trio is comprised of Steve Gianolio-Jones (guitar, vocals, programming), Rob Leaver (bass) and Mick Morrell (guitar, backing vocals).
A truly unique direction, that mixes elements of classic rock/metal, with electronica for a refreshingly original and exciting sound. Surface Unsigned
El ectric Cake Salad burst onto the Midlands scene back in 2005 with a distorted mix of crunching guitars, pulsing drum loops and midi samples. They effortlessly traverse a multitude of different genres, fusing together 80s and 90s rock and old-school rave and electro. Even styles as diverse as dance, drum and bass, electronica, dubstep and hip-hop are not beyond their fingertips; they have meddled with them all, taking them apart and stitching them back together in their own unique way.
Guitar ist and vocalist Steve said, We donít sound like other bands. We arenít aware of other bands that mixes in 80s rave with rock and electronica. Itís something thatís unique to us. We didnít start out with some grand plan; weíre like musical magpies if something sounds good, weíll borrow it, change it, and turn it into something new.
Critic s, too, have been quick to point out how unusual Electric Cake Saladís methods are, with notable reviews in Pure Rawk Magazine and local press. They have also received regular airplay on TBFM Radio and Kerrang! FM. Guitarist Mick added, We are defined by our unique sound there is no drummer all our sounds are mixed together through drum machine and electribe midiíd together.
W hile the band is not re-defining genres in the studio, they are making waves on the live circuit, performing at clubs and festivals up and down the UK. They were semifinalists at the Tamworth Battle Of The Bands and the Surface Unsigned Festival. They have performed at Glastonbudget 2012 and also supported Gunslinger, which features former members of Hawkwind, and Wolfsbane. Electric Cake Salad have been invited back to Glastonbudget 2013, sharing the bill with Howard Jones, Heaven 17 and.....ABC!
Electric Cake Salad put together a storming set... Their 'space metal' sound crunching guitars, over processed beats got the crowd going as they performed tunes like Superstar with much conviction and competence. Tamworth Herald
