Sick Livers - Motors Women Drugs Booze & Killing CD

Drunk & disorderly punk from the green grassy fields of South Wales, The Sick Livers seem like a nice bunch of lads, even though their tastes are limited mostly to their album title Motors, Women, Drugs, Booze & Killing.

I say mostly – they are also fans of loud guitars and frantic belligerent punk tunes, the likes of Gimme The Drugs, Get Ready and Sick Liver spelling out a crystal clear manifesto for their stormtrooping assault on the ear drums and vital organs.

It’s no surprise that The Sex Pistols’ Glen Matlock is quoted on their website as loving the band – this is exactly the sort of thing Sex Pistols and Anti-Nowhere League fans are going to lap up like the mohawked cats who got a saucer of cream spiked with catnip.

Blood On Your Halo is only a Lemmy-like growl away from early Motorhead, whilst there is more frenzy than a rabid dog in a phone booth on Cocaine Jeans and Seven Year Itch.

Bummed To Death is the suitably frenetic and classy cherry on the Sick Livers cake, closing out this short sharp shock of an album the same way it started – 100 miles per hour and in a blur of spit, sweat and alcohol and gasoline fumes.

You can even pick the record up on vinyl through Uber Rock this Christmas – click HERE for details
