Heavy as hell and sprinkled with combinations of metal, punk and industrial rock, Death At The Cash Machine is a beast of a six track EP. Focused on the North East culture, filled with heavy riffs, yet firmly with its tongue in its cheek, Death At The Cash Machine might actually be the perfect companion piece to Sam Fender’s recent Howdon Aldi Death Queue.

Filled with local satirical references (the central character of Radgie Gadgie and the full narrative of Bigg Market), Crux’s EP is an interestingly modern throwback to late 70s punk ability to take the piss out of current cultural norms by using humours references (“slaving away – for the next generation to do the same rotation”) and disposable riffs, all designed to camouflage hard hitting cultural commentary. Excellent.
