The Peach Fuzz, These Scouse newcomers have already made a splash on the scene last year with plenty of gigs in their home town as well as a few high profile tours with The Vryll Society and Clean Cut Kid. Their debut single ‘Destroy The Evidence’ being a personal favourite of mine of 2018; It’s a mixture of pysch, pop and rock ’n’ roll reminds me of the Manic Street Preachers during the ‘This Is My Truth’ to ‘Lifeblood’ era, ‪Produced by James Skelly and Rich Turvey at Parr Street Studios‬

Cabbage and the video for their current single ‘Gibraltar Ape’, which has been play-listed at BBC 6Music, Radio X and Virgin. Speaking about the video, Cabbage say; “No interminable, egocentric and grandeur oration can define truly of how proud we are of the Gibraltar Ape music video. Filmed and edited by Dominic Foster, starring the keen good folk of Mossley”.

Recorded at Parr Street Studios in Liverpool and produced by James Skelly (of The Coral) and Richard Turvey, ‘Gibraltar Ape’ follows the Manchester band’s three four-track EP’s released in late 2016: ‘Uber Capitalist Death Trade’ (whose title track was playlisted by BBC 6Music), ‘Necroflat In The Palace’ and ‘Terrorist Synthesizer’. A compilation of the three EPs – ‘Young, Dumb and Full of…” is available to stream now on Spotify

With their V05 NME Awards tour supporting Blossom’s sold-out, and their April headline dates also sold-out, Cabbage seem to be heading for the bigger stages very soon.

The single, Gibraltar Ape, released February 10th 2017 on Skeleton Key Records

Cabbage’s latest single ‘Gibraltar Ape’ affirms James Skelly’s signees as one of the key rock acts in the country right now, and they have a grimy visual to accompany the disaffected feel of the single. 
The video follows guitarist/singer Joe around Cabbage’s hometown of Mossley in Lancashire as he and someone in an Ape costume (presumably singer Lee Broadbent) take in the panoramic views surrounding the town and its thriving local pubs. It’s shot with a lo-fi camera, and the relatively out of focus shots reflect the disorientated feel of the tune as a whole.

The song captures the longing for freedom within the trappings of a capitalist society where transcending the presubscribed 9-5 route whilst staying above the breadline is an increasingly difficult thing to do thanks to benefit cuts. There’s no point kidding the optimism of the 90s or late 60s exists in today’s Britain, and through capturing that frustration they speak to the disaffected and ignite a spark in their bonnet.
