stemccabe.jpg Ste McCabe

Brains Of Britain (Maneki Neko Music)

Ste McCabe is an arty-punker with the snotty vocal style of Pete Shelley and the DIY pop aesthetic of Lovely Eggs. His sherbet dib-dab songs waft two fingers in the direction of family values, chinless wonders and the establishment in general. (Billy Bragg even crops up on Cockroach to rile bankers with the one thing that is sure to leave them quaking in their Paul Smith brogues – spoken word.) Too much exposure to McCabe’s tinny, unfunny and annoying ditties, however, left me looking for The Establishment membership forms so I could sign up on the dotted line.
