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

Uberpalooza poster

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

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

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/

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!

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.

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