On Friday 30th September Cabbage released their new four-track EP Uber Capitalist Death Trade on James Skelly’s Skeleton Key Records, the original home of Blossoms and home of She Drew the Gun. The EP is the first of three upcoming EP releases by the hotly-tipped Manchester five-piece.
With “the black humour of Buzzcocks, the surrealism of Happy Mondays, the haircuts of various Stone Roses” (i-D), Cabbage are a semi-controlled riot of tunes, energy and opinions. NME described their debut EP Le Chou as “five twisted post-punk slinkers stuffed with explicit lyrics and Jack White levels of rage” while The Guardian suggested that “they’re hell-bent on filling the current vacancy for rock’n’roll commentator on Brexit Britain.”
