Welcome to Steam Pie

We are an independent record label based in South Wales.

What's in a name
... Café culture – it isn’t just a 21st century phenomenon. In the South Wales valleys of the late 19th and early 20th centuries, Italian cafe pioneers, the Resteghinis, the Lusardis, the Sidolis, the Carpaninis and the Bracchis and others, (often from Bardi in Northern Italy), brought their entrepreneurial flair, their coffee, their ice cream and the fabulous machines which made them. These machines (and the evocative noises they made!) were also used to heat meat pies by steaming them. For more see the Seren book Lime, Lemon and Sarsparilla by Colin Hughes (1991) or listen to the Huw Williams song of the same name on the Huw & Tony Williams album “The Next Exit”...
