Well, what a night that was, as the cream of the UK’s underground punk, glam, rock and sleaze held hands to celebrate 5 years of the only music website that matters – Uber Rock!
A big shout out to the whole Uber team, you bonkers lot for losing your shit during our set, the hosts at The Dolls House, and to the dazzling display of talent in the shape of Dirt Box Disco, The Hip Priests, JD & The FDCs and Trigger McPoopshute.
Glunk Records head honcho Dom Daley (above) looks happy enough to get a sweaty set-list in his mitts. With four new future singalong classics previewed, we’ll definitely be stuffing well used five pound notes in his g-string to release the next album!!
Roll on October for more “Handsome” live dates in England and Wales. Tidy.
As the only rock ‘n’ roll website that matters, Uber Rock, turned 5 last week, we are just two weeks away from their free Uberpalooza party at The Dolls House in Abertillery.
We’d like to thank the team at Uber Rock for being tireless champions of what we do in The Sick Livers. Roll on 13th September for a really fucking strong bill of underground punk rock action as we delightfully share the stage with Dirt Box Disco, The Hip Priests, JD & The FDCs, and Trigger McPoopshute.
The campaign to #SaveLePub enters it’s final week and we have 10 tickets to give away for our show with Left Lane Cruiser on 18th October 2004. These come courtesy of friend of the band Richard Shirlow, who met his wife Lucy at Le Pub. They now reside in America with their kids and can’t make the show so have donated 10 tickets for you lucky buggers! Head over to the #SaveLePub thread to claim one… Here
There’s plenty of perks still available on Le Pub crowdfunding page, so head over and keep grassroots live music alive. Go… Save Le Pub
As we enter the rehearsal rooms to finish off the next album, there’s plenty of live autumnal action happening to catch the new stuff and more. And we’re soiling ourselves with excitement over it!! Full listings … Here
The track-listing has been announced for the Baldy Longhair & Fleeting Youth Records’ compilation for International Cassette Store Day 2014. “Two-Way Tie For Last” is a 38 band strong, 100 minutes of aural pleasure on one tape. The Sick Livers are track 2 on Side A. How tidy is that?
Having grown up with the cassette and the joy of the mixtape, there’s something quite romantic about being included in a brand new release on this format. Big Welsh thanks to the labels from across the pond who wanted to include us on this venture.
The compilation hits the following US stores on 27/09/14…Cassette store day (if they haven’t got it, demand it). And all for a mere $5 with a free download code we hear. Phwoar!
We’ll hopefully get our greasy UK mitts on some in the weeks following so we’ll keep you posted on that. Your battered car tape deck deserves a kick-arse compilation!
Full track-listing available on this feature from Punk News…
Very tidy indeed.
It’s an honour and a privilege to be asked by Baldy Longhair Records of New Jersey, USA to feature on a complication for this year’s Cassette Store Day. Together with Fleeting Youth Records, the 38 track tape “Two-Way Tie For Last” will be available on 27th September 2014 at participating record stores. They’re priced at $5 in the US and we’ll hopefully get our greasy palms on some UK copies shortly afterwards for your Walkman.
As we type, Glunk Records are in negotiations for a distribution deal for “Motors, Women, Drugs, Booze & Killing” in Germany. There’s also distro for the LP in Japan planned. The latter will come with a special Japan only goodie bag. We hear the translators at Glunk Records are having a great time turning dirty Wenglish words into Japanese!!!
Also, there’s only a handful of “Motors…” CD’s left. After the first limited digipack pressing ran out, these second edition jewel case versions will follow suit as we’re now in single figures. Re-pressing is unlikely at this point in time as we focus on our next glamorous punk DIY opus. Be quick if you want one… http://thesicklivers.bigcartel.com (and there’s still a free patch with every purchase, you lucky devils, you).
After a few printing errors on the original “Handsome” tees (modelled above by Sweden’s Chuck Ransom of The Chuck Norris Experiment), the latest ones are double coated and twice as sexy. To those who’ve got the earlier “distressed” version, you’re probably sitting on a glunk rock gold mine! We will do returns however if you email@example.com
And after our little virtual around the world trip, we’ll hopefully see some of you in the flesh at Uberpalooza. Tidy!
Next out of the gig bag and hot on the heels of Slugfest, we return to The Dolls House in Abertillery for Uberpalooza on Saturday 13th September 2014. A free party to celebrate the 5th birthday of the only glunk website that matters – Uber Rock!
Have you recovered yet? We’re still more than a bit sketchy! So, another insane Slugfest in the bag for another year. This being the seventh (for those of you that can count), and it was certainly up there with the maddest!
There was a little bit of pressure on us humble glunk underdogs after great plaudits from the previous two years. Plus, with 3 new songs in the set, how would they fare? The answer being, like anthems of old and bizarrely you all seemed to know the words! Tidy. All we can say is we had a fucking blast, we hope you did too and thanks for going completely bonkers for our set.
Mr Johnny Hayward of Uber Rock: “an 8 song set list that literally flattened the place!”
Look out for comprehensive review from the ladies at Uber Rock, taking in all the awesome bands who gave their time up for charity.
A massive shout-out as always to Darrel Sutton and his team for making the event as special as it is, and to the boys at The Dolls House in Abertillery Rock City for superbly hosting the madness. As the pennies are still being counted, we hope a shit-load was made for the chosen charities.
