UBERPALOOZA + OCTOBER LIVE ACTION!

Uberpalooza poster

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!

They’ve always been tireless champions of what we do in The Sick Livers so we urge you to come up (or down) as we join forces with Dirt Box Disco, The Hip Priests, JD & The FDCs and Trigger McPoopshute, for what promises to be a night of filthy Uber Rock action.

SLUGFEST THANX + SUMMER SALE!

Ginge Slugfest 7

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!

Veej in the crowd. Slugfest 7

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.

Matty and Ginge. Slugfest 7

Mr Johnny Hayward of Uber Rock: “an 8 song set list that literally flattened the place!”

Setlist for Slugfest 7

Look out for comprehensive review from the ladies at Uber Rock, taking in all the awesome bands who gave their time up for charity.

Veej at Slugfest 7

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.

SLUGFEST, T-SHIRTS, TOURS… AND MORE GALORE!

Slugfest 7

That time of the year is upon us again. The time for drinking, for dancing and for falling over in the name of charity at the one and only Slugfest in Abertillery Rock City. Now in it’s 7th year, you will not find a nicer bunch of like-minded rock ‘n’ roll folk doing crazy things for good causes.

We hit the Saturday stage at 8pm, but don’t come then. Arrive on Friday 4th July and leave on the Sunday. Christ, never leave at all!  It’s seriously that good! Oh, and it’s still absolutely free.

handsome Tee

VJ has been busy beavering away in his shed to bring you a very limited run of t-shirts, which will be available at Slugfest and online thereafter (if there’s any left). Punk rock prices guaranteed. Are you handsome in a certain light? Of course you fucking are!

Meet & Tweet

One Declan Dineen had this madcap notion to meet all his Twitter followers last year. Ginge took part, and why wouldn’t he? He was told to meet in a pub! The results of Declan’s adventures were staggering as the story spread worldwide. Now his “Meet and Tweet” escapades have been turned into a show which will run at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival through August 2014. The Sick Livers supply the intro tuneage in the shape of “Gimme The Drugs” and a trailer will be online soon. Check http://declandineen.com/meetandtweet

Glunk Logo

Soon those magnificent bastards at Glunk Records will be launching their website. We were GLUNK001, but who will be GLUNK002? Stay tuned to http://glunkrecords.co.uk/

Ginge & Veej

And last but not least, we have some autumnal live UK dates for your diaries. Stuff from the new album will be previewed and the glam punk is a-coming stronger than ever. Head down to one of the following if you can, and don’t forget your cowbell!

HANDSOME T-SHIRTS!

HANDSOME-TEE-5

Inspired by some words from the (potential) lead track “Dark, Dangerous & Delicious” from our forthcoming album, we present this very limited run of t-shirts in sizes S-XL. We all know lovers and haters of The Sick Livers are a handsome lot regardless of the lighting, so c’mon, let’s get it on!

The shirts will be available at Slugfest on Saturday 5th July and online thereafter… if there’s any left.

We’re totally buzzing about the new tracks. You can hear, what we think, will be an instant live favourite “Dark, Dangerous & Delicious” at the gig. There’ll also be a couple of other new slabs of glunk getting their first live outing alongside the “hits” you know and love. Then it’ll soon be time to record the bastards!

Hope to see you in Abertillery Rock City, at the most messiest charity event you’ll ever experience – SLUGFEST!

Andy tipsy

We’re 6 or 7 songs to the good/bad for our next album and we think you ‘orrible lot will lap up their lowdown and dirty glunk rock grooves. And don’t worry, there’s singalong choruses aplenty yet again!

DJ The Meat Slinger

Our “Cocaine Jeans” video notched up over 500 individual hits in it’s first week. We’re happy with that for a bunch of DIY chancers who ought to know better. Why not be a darling and share (if you haven’t already) the vid on your favourite social media format? We like going viral or something!

Next live stop is at the always free and always mental Slugfest. We play the Saturday (flyer below). Expect new tuneage amid the usual annual chaos. Hope to see you there for an ale or thirteen. Tidy.

D.I.Y. VID FOR “COCAINE JEANS!”

So in just under 24 hours we’ve cobbled together a DIY video for “Cocaine Jeans” to celebrate Glunk Records’ deal with Cargo for UK distribution of our album “Motors, Women, Drugs, Booze & Killing.”

A purchase of the vinyl will fund future Glunk releases and more Livers’ tours. Share it on them social media networks if you like, or spunk on it. We’d be pleased either way.

“Cocaine Jeans” is taken from the album “Motors, Women, Drugs, Booze & Killing.” Out now on Glunk Records (GLUNK001LP). Distribution via Cargo Records. Go seek it out in your local independent record shop! Alternatively there’s that Amazon or you can get it directly from our dirty selves at http://www.thesicklivers.bigcartel.com

On with writing the next glunk instalment. Tidy.

STILL ALIVE & STILL MOTORING!

image

Things may appear quiet over the coming months but we promise you we’re still alive and still motoring. Sorry about that!!

Not only is our (somewhat) critically acclaimed LP available from our bad selves, but you can now support future Glunk Records releases by grabbing one from your local independent UK record store (via Cargo Distro) or from Amazon worldwide.

Now’s the time to our debut DIY masterpiece… while you still can! It’s fucking awesome but don’t take our word for it, check out the reviews below.

VIVE LE ROCK: “A balls-out wall of rock ‘n’ roll guitar fronted by the irrepressible (and possibly certifiable) Ginge Knievil. 7/10″

BROKEN EARS MAG: “From start to finish, a DIY masterpiece!”

TERRORIZER MAGAZINE: “You get both barrels between the eyes from one of the hardest rockin’ punk ‘n’ roll bands on the circuit today!”

ARTCORE FANZINE: “A meat feast of 8 punk rock ‘n’ roll belters!”

MASS MOVEMENT MAGAZINE: “A damn fine platter of punk rawk ‘n’ roll with some of the most memorable choruses this side of AC/DC!”

UNDERKILL TV: “5/5 – a must have!”

BUZZ MAGAZINE: “Fast paced guitar, growling bass and guttural vocals – a relentless album!”

PURE RAWK: “20 minutes of breakneck riffathons about booze-fests gone horribly wrong!”

RUN THE TRACK MAGAZINE: “Sleazy punk rock ‘n’ roll at it’s best!”

DIVERSE MUSIC: “A balls out rock ‘n’ roll album. Get pissed and buy it!”

CLASSIC ROCK MAGAZINE “Cops and blood and sirens and screaming. That is what this record sounds like. On purpose.”

PUNK GLOBE: “They just want to make catchy enjoyable music… and they succeed!!”

VEGLAM: “Loud sleazy rock ’n’ roll guitars deliver some dirty fun in 8 songs. You can feel high energy running in the these guys veins.”

NEWPORT ONE-OFF FOR RECORD STORE DAY!

Le Pub 19th April 2014

Hey, glunkers! Come party with us this Saturday (19th April 2014) as we hit Newport’s Le Pub for a one-off show.

Red Medicine presents our dirty selves along with London noise merchants Death Pedals and local lads Swift Arvel. At £4 on the door, you can’t even get a pack of smokes for that!

Oh, it’s Record Store Day too so grab our LP from Diverse Records (also now available in all independent shops that deal with Cargo Records), learn all the “woos” and “yeahs” before joining us in the evening for the usual shenanigans we provide for your special entertainment needs.

Album of the week

We also welcome the flappy four stringer maestro Dai back to the fold after his brief absence. You’ll have to ask him where he went, we’re not entirely sure ourselves. Find him at the merch table, flogging the last of the tour t-shirts and spinning yarns of bands you don’t care about.

Hope to see you there!

TOUR THANX & WANX

Lee Loves Ginge

We made it back alive! After band absentees and monumental setbacks of Spinal Tap proportions, we only pulled the bloody thing off!! Properly blown away by the response from every town and city we intruded. Massive wanks must go to those blighters in The Hip Priests. Without the van and gear hire, the whole thing would’ve been a non-starter after the fuck-ups in the weeks previous. Eternally grateful, ladies.
Nelius CoxiusSo, Worcester. A great little venue in The Firefly and cracking booze to boot. Much love to Surprise Attacks for putting us on and for the hospitality of Neilius Coxius of 36 Strategies (pictured above gracing a lovely t-shirt in Camden Town over the weekend). Proper old school punk rock hosting with food, petrol, beer and partying to Slade records into the wee hours. The local constabulary were most understanding… Thankfully. Cheers to Sian for the post gig whiskey too!
Pipeline
The Pipeline in London. Hands down, our favourite rock ‘n’ roll venue in the Big Smoke. Always made welcome and as owner Thomas Evrenos said, “The Sick Livers will always have a home in London.” That means the world. Another cracking crowd and night with props to Jim & Tonic of Turbojugend Soho for taking up the mantle of vocal duties on a run through “Denim Demon.” You killed it, Sir. Top hangouts too with Glunk Records’ head honcho Dom Daley and Jonny Cola and The A-Grades’ Mauro Venegas. Little did we know we shared a stage with the latter in a former guise in Newport’s TJ’s in the mid 2000′s. Small world! Cheers to Chris Senior for the digs, bacon sandwiches and drunken 2am debates in a Tottenham pub.
Live at the Pipeline
And then there was Nottingham. After a random afternoon meet-up with Coop from The X-Rays in The Old Angel, our new found butty took us Welsh nutters under his wing and showed us the sights. Next thing you know, he’s introducing us at The Chameleon and joining us on stage for a rabble rousing rendition of Turbonegro’s “Denim Demon!” Add in a meet-up with Rat from Discharge and a second night stormer of a set from Los Pepes, ’twas another top day and night of glunk fun.
Worcester Sauce
And to Abertillery. Well, we didn’t quite make it but not without good reason, and here’s the serious bit. After cracking stand-in tour bass duties from the mighty Ian Pickens, he was needed at home following a friend of his daughter taking his own life due to school bullying. A horrific event but you may be able to help prevent further tragedies by signing the petition on the link below to raise awareness of the issue. We’d be grateful if you took a few minutes to sign….
Drum and Bass
So, that’s that! A triumphant tour coupled with the Bristol and Portsmouth dates previous. We have honoured our commitments in the punk rock fashion we only now how. Thanks once again for all your kind comments after the gig and the many on social media sites. We hope to return to your towns again real soon.
Merch Board
Forgot to pick a little something up from the merch table? You can be as tidy as America’s NekroChow of 2 Fat Punks who picked up his copy online. Thanks for the support, mate!
Head over to http://thesicklivers.bigcartel.com for worldwide shipping.
2 Fat Punks
Next up this month… Our LP goes into independent shops up and down the UK via Cargo Records, and a week later we play Newport’s Le Pub for Record Store Day on 19th April with Death Pedals and Sweet Benfica. The return of the original 10 legged glunk machine. Careful now!
Le Pub 19th April 2014
Tidy as fuck!!!

APRIL UK TOUR IS GO!

Priests Vs Livers 2014

Okay, the April jaunt is go! Our 10 legged glunk machine has been stripped to 6. With bass playing maestro Dai temporarily out of action and then guitar meat slinger DJ joining the casualty list, we momentarily thought we were done. But with 2 legs kindly loaned from local lads Terrorbite, in the shape of Ian Pickens, The Sick Livers may be depleted but not beaten! So in a raw punk rock fashion we will be honouring the 4 date stint with The Hip Priests.

Dates and venues in full with Facebook event links for directions, times, door tax etc:

Thursday 03/04/14 – The Firefly, Worcester, UK w/ The The Hip Priests + 10:94. https://www.facebook.com/events/660408700674248/

Friday 04/04/14 – The Pipeline, London (E1), UK w/ The Hip Priests + Los Pepes. https://www.facebook.com/events/743932348964696/

Sat 05/04/14 – The Chameleon Arts Cafe, Nottingham, UK w/ The Hip Priests + Los Pepes + Mannequin. https://m.facebook.com/events/476699892458982

Sun 06/04/14 – The Dolls House, Abertillery, UK (Matinee Show) w/ The Hip Priests + Trigger McPoopshute + Terrorbite. https://www.facebook.com/events/275694152591689/

Hope to see you at one of the shows for some stripped back and raw glunk rock action.

Get well soon, DJ. xxx
