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/

Get well soon, DJ. xxx

LP DISTRO THROUGH CARGO!

Sick Livers Bad Sam

Here in The Sick Livers camp, we are proud as a lethal homemade punch to have our “Motors, Women, Drugs, Booze and Killing” LP to receive UK distribution via Cargo Records.

We got the news today as independent records stores up and down the country started to receive pre-sale info via email. Dom Daley of Glunk Records has clearly been working hard behind the scenes and we can’t thank him enough.

So, with a distribution date set for 14th April 2014, head to your local record store and demand a copy of our (somewhat) critically acclaimed dirty debut!!

TOUR NEWS!

Lee Loves our threads

Sadly and regrettably, due to freak “cheese fondue” related incident, Dai will be downing his bass tools briefly for our March and April UK tour dates with The Hip Priests.

Stepping in, and please make him welcome for his stint, is Mr Ian Pickens. As the photo below shows, he’s more than keen to fill the 4-stringer glunk rock position and should fit it perfectly!

2013 – A THANK YOU!

Le Pub crowd

When we started this trashy glam punk outfit, we expected to achieve well, nothing! This was all about making music we love for ourselves, and if a few people enjoyed it along the way then great! 2013 has totally blown everything out of the water.

image-1

There’s been too many highlights to mention, but hey we’ll have a go!
• Getting our album out there on vinyl, and receiving rapturous applause from the rock press.
• An appearance alongside our peers at Camden Rocks. Truly humbled to be accepted by what are heroes to us.
• A tour with our bad sisters The Hip Priests. Messy times and more to come in 2014. Oh dear!
• A split UK / Japanese 7″ courtesy of AM Records.
• A sell-out show (in under 8 days no less) in our adopted hometown of Newport. Amazing scenes.

We could go on, but then we also had to turn down a support with our glunk rock hero Sylvain Sylvain to honour a smaller show and we had a shitty photo in the NME with a predictable caption!

To top off the year in style, our album hit the number 4 spot overall at Uber Rock’s Albums of 2013. This is made all the more special given our DIY ethnic on how we recorded and released the album ourselves, with final input from Glunk Records. Check out the full Uber Rock lists here:

 But the main people to thank in all this is you guys. The ones who bought the record, came to the shows, wore the t-shirt and embraced our messy rabble rousing nonsense. You are fucking awesome and we love you!
image-4
Finally, check out Dai and Matty being interviewed for Underkill TV. There’s some sexy footage from the sold-out Le Pub show too.
 

 
Happy New Year, glunkers! See you in 2014 for more of the same.
