Manchester five-piece Cabbage describe themselves as “serving up an idiosyncratic, satirical attack in the form of discordant neo-post-punk”. Lee Broadbent (lead vocals), Joe Martin (vocals, guitar), Eoghan Clifford (guitar), Stephen Evans (bass) and Asa Morley (drums), are one of a long list of bands to be described as “the next big thing” to come out of the Manchester music scene. That’s not to say the accolade does not hold substance, Cabbage not only have an unconventional name they also have some unusual topics to sing about. Mixing garage sounds to lyrics more than tinged with black humour.
There is little left to the imagination if your Guitarist is inspired by GG Allin, Cabbage may not be original with there music, lyrical content or at time disturbing video’s they put out. What they do though is step outside of the constraints and conventional attitudes some bands are happy to survive in, when its put to music then it may very well be the next big thing.
