My Friend The Chocolate Cake
discography

My Friend The Chocolate Cake took flight in 1991, during the latter days of Not Drowning, Waving's career. The group features ex-Not Drowning, Waving members David Bridie and Helen Mountfort in an acoustic, folk-pop context. Imagine the Penguin Café Orchestra meets Arvo Part meets Not Drowning, Waving and you'll have a cursory idea of the band's sound.
