Cabbage have just announced details of the Nhilistic Glamour Shots art exhibition, set to take place at Manchester Art Gallery on 3 April 2018.
Featuring paintings, sculptures and installations inspired by the band’s forthcoming album, the exhibition will also feature live performance art from Kallum Nolan and a stripped back set from the band themselves. Nihilistic Glamour Shots (due 30 March and reviewed on Louder Than War here) comes on the tail end of a 24 month period which has seen the Mossley 5 piece release five EPs, 36 singles and play well over 200 freewheeling gigs. Produced by The Coral’s James Skelly alongside Rich Turvey at Parr Street Studios, the album draws on the bands 6Music playlisted singles Gibraltar Ape and Celebration Of A Disease alongside 10 new tracks.
Just to throw a curveball into the mix Cabbage have created their own wonk event to give us an insight into their weird and wonderful world of indie punk madness. This event is a unique insight into a band that want to change the perceptions of Mancunian swagger, mixing politics with comedy in their own bizarre way. One worth checking out just for the cheek of doing it and getting Manchester Art Gallery on board.
This will be interesting if not damn daft and I look forward to how they will pull this off!!
Dear the internet and all those semi conscious. It gives us great pleasure to announce ‘Nihilistic Glamour Shots: Art Exhibition’ on Tuesday 3rd April. We will host an evening at Manchester Art Gallery where we will reveal the autopsy of our debut record and produce pieces ranging from performance art, paintings, sculptures and installations that coincide with each track on the album. The experiment itself will be documented by our dear lens coordinator Kallum Nolan and all members will be taking part in the performance. The evening will also us performing a live stripped back show. There are a limited amount of tickets due to the size of the venue so to all who find a deep interest in scrap books and bathtubs make haste for the tickets.
