The Sick Livers in Gateshead August 2015



Well, well, well… what an amazing 5 days that was! Our Glunk Records and Baldy Longhair comrades The Disconnects from New Jersey came, saw and conquered on their very first visit to these shores, and we were only too happy to bring up the rear on a British jaunt that was a match made in heaven. The rock ‘n’ roll shows ended way too soon but we believe we’ve made friends for life in Ryan, Tommy, Anthony and Lawrence, and not forgetting their tour manager / driver / crazy ecological teacher – Kyle. The crowds each night were insane, new friends were made and we’re left humbled by the love around the country for our glunk machine.
