Anji Cakebread – Dear Computer – Vinyl


Band: Anji Cakebread

Label: Think Like A Key Music

Format: Vinyl

Catalogue Number: TLAS003


In the late seventies, Anji Cakebread was inspired by a hefty electricity bill to pen a poem. This poem sparked a melody composed by producer Tony Rockliff, eventually culminating in the recording of “Dear Computer.” The track featured John Gilston from the Incredible String Band providing the computer voice, and John Harry Watson on harmonica. This proto-electro pop gem was born, and UK’s Record Mirror aptly described it as “Kraftwerk meets Lynsey De Paul.” Nearly 50 years on, it has garnered a cult-like following and remains a highly sought-after release. Now, for the first time ever, it’s being reissued—limited to just 200 copies.
