Having spaffed and spunked their way from being The Viva Kinevils many moons ago, it’s about time we had some proper recorded LP output from this bunch of bail hostel dwellers. and Motors, Women, Drugs, Booze & Killing is about, yeah you’ve guessed it…

Kicking in like The Fartz Give Me The Drugs is straight to the point, ‘Intravenous or up my arse just give me the drugs,’ sets the tone of this debut album by Newport’s Sick Livers. I guess the album title gives it away and there are no holds barred. This is punk rock ‘n’ roll that is more Zodiac Mindwarp than Macc Lads and is fucking great fun to take your partner by the throat and slam him/her around the bedroom. You can pogo to Seven Year Itch and then mosh-mental when the ace middle bit kicks in, and that’s what this short, but very sharp album does. It brings out the animal in you, stick your iPod headphones on and you’ll find it hard to resist the urge to least tap your feet and at best go crowd surfing (in Tesco).

And that is what The Sick Livers are about, FUN, base fun, we’re ‘avin’ a laugh, no one’s getting hurt apart from being Bummed To Death, if you’re offended then you’re in the wrong era, go back to Uni in the late eighties and wear dungarees you prick. This is modern retro music with LOUD GUITARS, this is Spunk Rock, these are the New Port Dolls, this is 24 minutes of DIY infidelity glunk for a DIY price.

Highlights are Give Me The Drugs, Get Ready, Sick Liver, Blood On Your Halo, Cocaine Jeans, Seven Year Itch, Hell Bent On You and Bummed To Death… That’s right, every fucking track on this album is a highlight and deserves to be played VERY LOUD…

It’s out on June 24th – try and buy it from one of their gigs, which, by all accounts are events not gigs, or from The Sick Livers

‘Whoah baby can you please take it slow, I was bummed to death…’
