Check Out Cabbage’s ‘Really Bad’ New Track About ‘Making A Murderer’ Man Stephen Avery

Today, gobby Manchester lads Cabbage release their second EP ‘Uber Capitalist Death Trade’ on James Skelly’s label, Skeleton Key Records. The title track may indeed be the highlight, but it’s the closing track ‘Free Stephen Avery (Wrong America)’ that will have tongues wagging this weekend.

The song makes reference to Stephen Avery, subject of Netflix’s true crime series Making A Murderer (“Free Stephen Avery, it epitomises everything wrong with America”), though they couldn’t resist writing about the US without making a passing comment to one particular Presidential candidate, too (“death to Donald Trump”). Go on boys, tell us how you really feel.

When NME spoke to singer Lee Broadbent earlier this year, he openly admitted that he actually thought the song was “really bad”, but that it summed up both their “loving and loathing of the country”. He added, “I suppose we just loathe the tactics and the way the UK and the US have always been the bullies of the west”, and on the hilarious and ragged finished product, they’re at their twisted best.
