The Cult Maniax are a band from Torrington, Devon in England. The name is derived from them being the Cult and their fans being the Maniax. They formed in about 1980 and unofficially called it a day in 1986 although, since a return to the stage during the first (now annual) Punx Picnic held in Plymouth, UK, September 1996, they still perform the odd gig. They enjoyed moderate success with their Full Of Spunk EP topping the indie charts in some of the music papers and were an exciting live act. They are probably best known for their first single, the Black Horse EP.
