For the Sake of David Bridie

In 1983, David Bridie formed Not Drowning, Waving with John Phillips. Combining elements of rock, ambient and world music, the band released a handful of albums and soundtracks before disbanding in 1994.
My Friend the Chocolate Cake came next, a band formed after Bridie penned “a few more breezy compositions” that didn’t fit the mould of Not Drowning, Waving. He has also released several solo albums. Also to note is For God’s Sake Australia, Have a Look at the Map, a three-part series where the songman shares his story of how he first came to know Papua New Guinea and how the lasting connection has influenced his approach to music.
