THE SICK LIVERS IN CLASSIC ROCK!

The Sick Livers in Classic Rock Magazine

Cheers to Sleazegrinder for the review and column inches in the latest edition of Classic Rock magazine. You can pick up a copy at all good newsagents, and some shit ones too.

Full review:

“A bunch of over-the-hill creeps from South Wales stinking of desperation and jaundice launching an all-out assault on goodness and decency with a fistful of rock ‘n’ roll; a bellyful of roiling poison and a collection of late-70s punk and hard rock records, all warped, cranked and sticky with beer and puke.

The Sick Livers are all about maximum impact, so every song is searing, Angus Young-alike guitar solos, every chorus a massive scream-along filled with Misfits-y ‘whoa-ohs’, every lyric a chest beating boast about their sexual potency or their intimate friendships with the devil and his hard-partying cronies.

Their closest cousins in rock are probably Turbonegro, although with those dudes, you’re never quite sure if it’s all a gag, a make-up smeared hoodwink, a grand illusion. With The Sick Livers, there’s no question: this is their fucked-up, merciless, pitiless, gonna-kill-them-all-soon lifestyle.

If you can imagine Guns N’ Roses as skid row tramps, then you already know what’s up.”
