On Saturday 12th March 2016 we return to Hobos Live Music Venue in Bridgend for a headline show. This is a rescheduled gig we were desperate to fulfil after a cancellation last November due to Ginge Knievil getting his medication right. The entry fee is FREE! Support comes from Trackstar/Pornstar (Pontypridd) and The MLC (Bridgend). Doors open at 8pm. Keep up-to-date via the Facebook event page HERE.
On Thursday 17th March 2016 we’re honoured to be supporting The Professionals at Clwb Ifor Bach in Cardiff. This line-up (Paul Cook, Ray McVeigh, Paul Myers, Tom Spencer) hit London’s 100 Club for a sold-out appearance last year and are now returning for a short UK tour. The Cardiff date is hosted by Death or Glory Promotions and ticket links can be found on their Facebook page HERE.
Whoa! What a weekend that was! With Dai, our main flappy four stringer, recovering from his recent car crash, we entered London after a mere two hour rehearsal with the 11th hour stand-in that was Darrel Sutton from Trigger McPoopshute. Any trepidation was blown out of the water with the enthusiasm and accolades from the rabid crowd at The Pipeline following our hectic set. As always, we remain totally humbled for your love of five guys from Wales doing what they love.
Some eternal weekend thanks and wanks to: Thomas Evrenos @ The Pipeline; Rich Rags (Role Models); Lee, Austin and Nathan (The Hip Priests); Coop and Gaz (X-Rays); The Chuck Norris Experiment; Tor Abyss (Lucifer Star Machine); Stevie Pearce (Warrior Soul); Martin Haslam (The Degenerates / Louder Than War); Dom Daley (Glunk Records); Amy Daley (for the snapshots); Charley Knievil (for merch duties, even on her birthday); Armitage Smith (The Paranoid Squirrel Rock Show); Svenja Block (Photography); Dave Zorg (Musikpix); Captain Poon and Bloodlights; Zero Zero; Fuck Frankie; The Good The Bad and The Zugly; Crude Caress, Flash House; The Parkinsons; Turbojugend chapters the world over; To friends old and new.
Our warts and all set is online for your aural (dis)pleasure via The Paranoid Squirrel Rock Show, where host Armitage advises.. “Frontman Ginge is undoubtedly one of the greatest R’n’R frontmen out there at the moment and can be relied upon to pulverise The Sick Livers’ pendulous Piñata of splendidly catchy Rock n Roll into several smithereens.” Listen back HERE.
The remainder of the amazing hand-printed woodcut posters to commemorate the event by Matt Valentine are now online. Grab one (while you can) HERE.
London is on! For those who aren’t in the know, our four stringed maestro Mr. Dai Bauchery was involved in a car accident recently. For a split second we had to announce that we wouldn’t be able to make our appearance. Cancelling shows is not a decision we take lightly and the seriousness of Dai’s accident threw us somewhat. Little did we know that Darrel Sutton of Trigger McPoopshute fame (pictured in all his glory below) would be in London for the ‘DeathTime ASSembly’ event, and furthermore agreed to stand-in, with Dai’s consent. So, after an overwhelming response that people wanted a show by The Sick Livers in London – we’re pulling out all the stops to give you one! We’d also like to thank everyone for their messages of support for Dai. We’re been very touched!
So, The Pipeline in London’s E1 district is the place to be on Friday 19th and Saturday 20th February 2016 for an awesome array of killer rock ‘n’ roll badness, including…
• The Parkinsons (Portugal).
