Record of the week: Self-Made Man, by Cable Ties
13 February, 2020 — By Róisín Gadelrab
YOU’LL recognise the figure at the centre of Melbourne three-piece Cable Ties’ single Self-Made Man, says frontwoman Jennie McKechnie, and she’s right. He’s the entitled one who rose to the top with no help from anyone else. They call out this well-worn character, who fails to acknowledge those who helped him along the way, in a short and sweet punk diatribe. They play Old Blue Last on April 7.
