Manchester’s most exciting new band are set to release their new EP titled ‘Uber Capitalist Death Trade’. The EP carries some heavy political messages with songs speaking out against Donald Trump and the incarceration of ‘Making a Murderer’s’ Steven Avery.
You’d be forgiven if you haven’t yet heard of Cabbage, but they are definitely worth checking out. Cabbage are a young band from Mossley in Manchester. Their website describes them as a ‘Manchester based five piece serving up an idiosyncratic, satirical attack in the form of discordant neo post-punk.’ Which is a pretty apt description to say the least.
The band have recently started to pick up momentum in the music world, after supporting ‘Blossoms’ on their latest UK tour. Their first EP ‘Le Chou’, was released on Tim Burgess’ O Genesis Label. The EP was met with a huge amount interest from the underground indie scene, with some writers drawing comparisons with London based punk band ‘Fat White Family’.
‘Uber Capitalist Death Trade’ has been released on James Skelly’s (The Coral) record label ‘Skeleton Key’. The press statement that accompanies the EP states: “Exhibit A. ‘Uber Capitalist Death Trade’ is the first of its set. It pays homage to the tragedy of British soldiers being brainwashed and utilised, then either killed or spat out by the same vicious machine it salutes. It pays tribute to human nature being unforgiving and the pain of the vacuous socially cleansed cities versus the ghostly fallen towns of Britain. It prays to the gargantuan presence that is the United States Of Freedom and it begs to be punished by the sweet sweet pseudo tales of Manchester. Read a book, steal from a billionaire, listen to Cabbage. Exhibit A.”
