Manchester music through their own fantasticaly dark and twisted humor laced eyes. You really have to see Cabbage to realise just how wonderful they are. They may act madcap but they have the genius, they may roll around the floor and change singers at will (which is a great thing!), they may look like a band who didn't get round to deciding just who did what before being thrust into the spotlight but that's the core of their genius. That sense of precarious and sense of take them as they are is perfection. This is pure unadulterated, unfettered, untainted music making and proof that there is still plenty of life and possibilities in the guitar thing.
It’s a brilliantly excitable crowd on the second of a two night stint at the Ritz. You can really feel something in their air as the band own the place. They exude a confidence but not a hot air arrogance, they understand the communality of great guitar music and they are exploding with the energy of the moment.
