 Independent label: Next Wave Former Address: 86 Victoria Street, Barnstaple, North Devon. The Cult Maniax are an English punk rock band, that formed in Great Torrington, Devon in 1978. They had three indie hits in the mid-1980s before splitting up, although they reformed in the 1990s for occasional performances. Their first release, the "Black Horse" EP attracted newspaper headlines in 1982. The Black Horse was, and still is, a public house in Torrington. The lyrics of the title track "Black Horse" (written by Alan "Big Al" Mitchell) expressed his dissatisfaction at the landlord's attitude to the punk generation. The band sold 200 copies of the single before a court case forced them to hand over the master copies and destroy all remaining copies. Some further copies were sold with the offending track scratched out. The original single can often be found on auction sites attracting prices in the region of 50 for a mint copy. Soon after the release of the "Frenzie" EP Sargeant left the band. Band members were Alan "Big Al" Mitchell  vocals, Foxy Steer bass, Mildew Mules  drums, Riko Sargeant guitar. Fly On The Wall Band members were Bass Lynton Garner, Drums Tony Martin, Guitar, Backing Vocals Bunker Brazier, Vocals Tug.  Distributed By.
