Mid Liver Crisis iPhone

Our new album “Mid Liver Crisis” goes off to the pressing plant next week. A DIY labour of love which we’re extremely proud of. Writing, playing, recording, mixing, engineering, mastering… All done by The Sick Livers.
Glunk And Baldylonghair
Scheduled for a summer 2015 release worldwide through Glunk Records (UK & Europe) and Baldy Longhair Records (USA). “MLC” will be available on various 12″ vinyl options, CD, cassette and download.

Stay tuned for pre-sale packages, an August UK tour announcement with New Jersey’s The Disconnects, a YouTube album teaser, and a music video for ‘Dark, Dangerous & Delicious.’
Many masters

Pour a glass of your favourite tipple and relax into all the gossip and all the bollocks here



As we type, the new album is taking a dirty, twisted and glorious glam punk rock shape. A 10 strong killer chorus and big riff laden opus that we believe to be our best work to date. Early seals of approval have already been stamped by our peers in the shape of Charlie Harper (UK Subs) and Andy Cairns (Therapy?). The latter agreed to supply the vocal intro to the album’s opening track – “This Is My Denim.” Massive thanks to Andy and to Ian Glasper of Thirty Six Strategies for hooking us up. There could be a second guest appearance to follow too, so watch this space!

The One Night Stand At The Pint Dublin

Over the coming months we’ve gigs aplenty. From hometown shows in our native Wales, a few festival appearances, a support slot with The Dictators, jetting into Dublin for a one night stand, and more. Full details of all our shows with ticket links can be found  Here.

Gingers Back!

Head over to Uber Rock as Ginge Knievil talks briefly about a special one-off LP preview show at Newport’s Le Pub, plus the forthcoming date in the Irish capital and more. Click HERE.

Dj at Le Pub

So, it’s all systems go! We thank and love you for the continued support you give to us humble Welsh DIY chancers. Tidy. 





Dj & Matty Le Pub xmas 2014

The time has come to lay the foundations of the new LP. Excited much? We are! It’s to the depths of the Rhondda Valleys this week to tighten up the tracks (not too much, mind) and then to the hallowed ground of an unusually empty Le Pub in Newport to lay down the the rhythm section in all it’s raw live glory.

Djs gear

Still scheduled for a spring / early summer release with glam stomp, punk roots, riffs galore and singalongs aplenty, we believe this 10 track opus to be our finest yet. Don’t take out word for it though. On hearing potential lead single ‘Dark, Dangerous & Delicious’ live in Cardiff last year, Mr Charlie Harper of the legendary UK Subs declared: “It’s the best song Hanoi Rocks never wrote!”


We can announce that Glunk Records will release the LP in the UK and Europe, with the serial numbers GLUNK004LP and GLUNK004CD respectively. Distribution news for the USA and the rest of the world to follow. A little meeting with the Glunk Records’ head honchos in early February will reveal all and more.

Song title badges


Whilst cooped up in a day centre at the end of last year, Ginge Knievil made up some limited packs of 10 pin badges for each album track. These will be available on album release at our online merch stall.
Hobos in it
We’ve two March live shows in the hometowns of Veej and Ginge in Bridgend County, and DJ and Matty in Torfaen. The 6th sees us hit The Six In Hand in Cwmbran, and on the 7th we return to Hobos Live Music Venue in Bridgend. Both gigs are free entry so no excuses for some dirty rock ‘n’ roll action if you’re near!
Bus Stop Ireland
Our little Irish jaunt with Trigger McPoopshute is very much alive and some stickers have been spotted (above) on Dublin’s busiest bus stop! Dates are pencilled in for the May Day Bank Holiday weekend and social media reports that Turbojugend Dublin are hosting a meet-up on Saturday 2nd. Things could (and will) get very messy! Watch this space for an official Irish announcement.
As it’s onwards with new material, within a few weeks all our old stuff will be available digitally, some for the first time. “Motors…” and “Flogging A Sick Liver” will be available on iTunes, Amazon, Spotify, Deezer and the like. The latter release is a compilation (originally available on CD) of our early singles ‘Hell Of A Girl’ and ‘Rumney Rock City.’ If you wanna support the band we urge you to buy this over the “From Rumney To Hell…” version as we’ll actually see the pennies to fund future gigs and hard copy releases. Plus you get a spoken word intro track from the filthy Lee Love of The Hip Priests, so you can’t argue with that! Thanks in advance if downloads are your thing.
Camden Rocks 2015
We played Camden Rocks in 2013 and would love to return in 2015. You can help us DIY chancers get on the bill with the bigger boys by submitting our bad name. We’ll love you forever if you do. Promise! Submit THE SICK LIVERS here.
Dai in Bass Guitar Mag
Our four stringed maestro Dai made the pages of Bass Guitar Magazine this month. Be sure to ask your newsagent for a copy and marvel at his throbbing low-end chat. 
RIP Bugsy CD
Last but certainly not least, shout-out to Trigger McPoopshute who are releasing a 2 track live CD and download in memory of friend of both bands, Bugsy, who tragically passed away on Boxing Day. Something we totally support, the release will aid his family and details in full are here




Happy New Year… and what better way to launch it than a one-off show in old London Town! On the 10th January 2015 we join Norwegian punks Honningbarna on their first headline UK show. The venue is our favourite rock ‘n’ roll haunt in E1, The Pipeline. Bringing up the rear is the excellent Cretin 77, so a full-on night of high-octane punk action is guaranteed. We know loads have snapped up tickets, but YOU can be part of the fun for £10. Tickets here

The new album is a-coming we tell thee! Ginge and VJ talk to Underkill TV about it all and more in Episode 95 (above). Give a watch and/or a “like” or a share on that social media, for we are very excited about the 10 new tracks that will make the next DIY glam punk opus.


We recorded “Motors…” in sheds and cellars, and the new LP will be no different apart from that we can now confirm the rhythm foundations will be laid in the ambience of Newport’s legendary Le Pub. Thanks to Sam at the venue for agreeing to do this for us. There’ll be something really special about pressing “play and record” in the magnificent and historic building.

Our online January sale is now live. That includes the remaining gold on black “Wet” t-shirts from the sold-out Newport show. Stocks are low, so you know what to do. Buy here.


We have it on good authority that Uber Rock have covered the aforementioned Newport show and it will be online at the end of this week (09/01/15). What will they make of the mayhem and chaos? Fuck knows! What we do know (and are extremely proud of) is we’ve made a few end of year lists, including “Gigs Of 2014″ on the only music website that really matters. Check later for the Le Pub review, in the meantime the top gigs list can be viewed here.


Gigs are rolling in for 2015 and at this early stage we know we’ll be sharing the stage with some truly awesome bands… The Dictators, Chuck Norris Experiment, Exit International, Spunk Volcano, Honningbarna, En Garde, and more! Get in touch to touch us live. Full listing thus far are here.


So, it’s the month where the new album will get laid and we’d better get on it! The title has been decided, although we’re keeping it close to our barrel chests at this moment. A provisional order of debauched play has been touted (above) and Glunk Records are on hand to forward to the pressing plant for a hopeful spring release. The time is almost nigh to make you wet! Tidy.



Le Pub Xmas 2014 crowd

On an evening where a feast of musical genres hit Newport on the same night, there was a smell of that old “New Seattle” aroma in the air. Our horrible selves were ramping up the glam punk at Le Pub, the mighty reformed Dub War were ripping up The Basement and the 2 Rude all-stars were skanking in the Riverside. All shows amazingly attended, a definite triumph for the city of Newport.

Ginge Le Pub Xmas 2014

After proudly selling out our Le Pub show in a matter of hours and with tickets being exchanged, sold and bought until the final minutes, we were on for a mental night!

Xmas 2014 Badges

Thank you to Sam, Matt and all the staff at Le Pub for hosting and managing the event in the mêlée of drunkenness and debauchery. As photos come in, there were some proud owners of those personalised goodie bags that were cheap enough to make your local pound shop blush!

Le Pub Xmas 2014 Goody Bag

Excellent sets were turned in from Trigger McPoopshute (are they getting tighter? Ahem) and the resplendent noise in the form of Science Bastard. Massive wanks from The Livers’ ladies to both bands.

Le Pub 1014 xmas setlist

And people did travel from far and wide. Carmarthen, Bridgend, Bristol, Devon, Dorset, London… you really do blow us away with your support!
Le Pub Xmas 2014 crowd 2
You may have spotted some professional looking cameras darting around Le Pub. That’ll have been award winning filmmaker Hefin Rees and team. The foundations were being laid for a 2015 warts and all rockumentary on the band. We’re serious! What’s the worst that could happen? Watch this space!!
Sick livers Xmas 2014 Stage invasion 1
VJ and Ginge also participated an exclusive pre-gig interview for Underkill TV (in the glamorous setting of the Travelodge foyer no less). Next year’s album was discussed along with the usual bollocks that leaves our mouths! Should be online in the next few weeks, we’ll keep you posted!
Matty Xmas 2014 Le Pub
So, in conclusion, an awesome night that ended in a mess of stage invasions, our lovely drummer downing windowed pint glasses of alcoholic slops and an impromptu bum-off (?!?!?!). To everyone who made it the night so, THANK FUCKING YOU!! Same time again next year, is it?
R.I.P Bugsy. Xx
For Bugsy. RIP. xxx 




Le Pub 2014

It’s almost time to blow away the Christmas and Boxing Day turkey and stuffing as we descend on Newport’s Le Pub for some sold-out glam punk action on Saturday 27th December.
Sick Livers sick bags
Doors open at 8pm for advanced ticket holders to grab their wristbands and free goodie bags from the downstairs bar. Ginge Knievil has lovingly personalised and packed the prescription bags, you lucky blighters! Guest-listers can also collect their wristbands from the bar downstairs and then it’s upstairs for the festive fun and frolics.
Wet T Shirt Newport Special
In dashing Newport amber and black, we’ll have a limited run of the Glunk Records’ “Make Me Wet” t-shirt on sale on the night at a punk rock price. Any leftovers will be online in the New Year.
Pipeline Gig 2015
No sooner as 2015 has got itself out of the starting blocks, we travel to London Town for a one-off at The Pipeline in E1. Norwegian punks Honningbarna are in the English capital for their first headline show. Come kickstart your new year with what feels like half of Scandinavia in Whitechapel. Tickets are still available HERE.
The Shovinator
January 2015 will also see us start recording the next glunk long player in the same DIY fashion as the last. A chorus laden 10 track meat feast we’re extremely proud of and can’t wait to share with you. In the meantime, get out your diaries as next year’s shows are being booked up to support the release. Full listings HERE.
