XMAS SHOW SELL-OUTS – A THANK YOU!

image1

Tickets went live for our Christmas and New Year’s party at Newport’s Le Pub at 9am on Tuesday. Within 10 hours, they were gone! Santa Maria!!
Us humble glunk chancers are absolutely blown away by the response, especially given the host of other talent on show in Newport on the same night. So a big fat fucking thank you. We really do love you!

We look forward to blowing your festive socks off along with Science Bastard and Trigger McPoopshute on Saturday 27th December 2014. Best we get preparing those goodie bags for you. Tidy.

LE PUB IS FOR LIVERS!

Xmas 2014

After last year’s roaring sell-out success at Newport’s Le Pub, we’re doing the Christmas & New Year party thing again this year. Woooo!!!
The poster says tickets are on sale next month, but we can’t leave you waiting that long! So, Tuesday 21st October 2014 at 9am via WeGotTickets is the place to be to secure your place.
If you came last year (we did), you know the drill. This year, the (cheaper) £5 entry fee gets you us handsome glam punk anti-heroes with a few special tricks up our sleeves, Newport’s one and only Science Bastard (who are playing their only show this year), and valley nut-jobs Trigger McPoopshute. Oh, and a free Sick goodie bag for all advanced ticket holders, worth the fiver entry fee only!!
So, at 9am on 21/10/14, be smart drunk glunkers and be a part of another manic festive show.

Save Le Pub
Last Saturday’s #SaveLePub show was an emotional affair (although it probably didn’t show from the outside), as we played a set in honour of Matty’s Dad Steve Knievil who passed away only a few days earlier. As DJ’s shot from the stage shows (above), we more than raised a glass for Steve. R.I.P.

CALLING LEICESTER, NOTTINGHAM, BRISTOL & NEWPORT.

Wet tee

It comes with deep regret that we will be unable to honour our commitments at the shows listed above over the coming weeks. Anyone that knows us will understand that this is not a decision taken lightly, having honoured a previous tour with two men down and a vomit induced Christmas show.


Ginge has been unwell for several months and needs to receive some hospital treatment this week. We sincerely apologise to anyone who will be let down by this announcement, we hope you understand and Ginge is striving to be fighting fit for the UK Subs date in November and beyond.
Ginge would also like to thank you all for your messages of support and well wishes on social media etc.
To any bands or promoters this effects, we’ll be in touch or please contact Dai through Facebook or via email at thesicklivers@hotmail.co.uk
The new gig exclusive “Wet” t-shirts (as pictured above) are now available online at Here
See you soon, glunkers.

HANDSOME OCTOBER LIVE ACTION!

Handsome tour poster

Just as we’re getting the news that our “Motors, Women, Drugs, Booze & Killing” LP will now be available via Germany’s Wanda Records, and coupled with the fact that the second pressing of said album on CD has officially sold-out, we’re hitting the road to preview new stuff and more throughout October.

A new gig-only exclusive “Wet” t-shirt will be available at the dates in sexy cardinal red. Check social media over the coming week for the design. So don’t hesitate to rock on up to the merch table to grab one and have a haggle with Dai for some super duper old stock deals too.

UBER THANKS!

UBER THANKS! 1

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!

DJs view

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.

Dom not Don

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!!

Uber Ginge

Roll on October for more “Handsome” live dates in England and Wales. Tidy.

UBERPALOOZA + #SAVELEPUB TICKET GIVEAWAY

Uberpalooza poster

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.

Save Le Pub Banner

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

Save Le Pub Weekender

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

Ginge at Slugfest 7

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

C30, C60, C90, GO!

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!

Fleeting Youth

Full track-listing available on this feature from Punk News… 

Very tidy indeed.

NEWS FLASH… VIA NEW JERSEY, TOKYO, BERLIN & RUMNEY ROCK CITY!

Veej at Slugfest 7

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!!!

image

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).

Chuck Ransom of The Chuck Norris Experiment

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 emailthesicklivers@hotmail.co.uk

And after our little virtual around the world trip, we’ll hopefully see some of you in the flesh at Uberpalooza. Tidy!
