REVIEWS

Riot On Your Own #26 – Fanzine 2007
It’s been well worth the wait to get hearing this ‘un. 12 pulverising , yet well crafted UK 82ish incendiary devicesblowing up in yer face. The singles “Violence” and “Losing The War” would have been classic 7″ inchers from any generation and there’s a few here just as good. The reworking of Erase Today’s “Gotta Revolution” with label boss Andy Higgins on guest vocals incorporates an infectious singalong hook to the raging spirit of rebellion and last cut “Last Generation” is yet another gem. SICK56 are still the best comparatively new punk band in Britain and a year or so on from their epic single “Violence” , SICK56 should still be “THE WRITING ON THE WALL” across the nation!

FFRUK Sep 2006
Damn! It´s taken ages for this album to come out but I have to admit it has been worth the wait. There´s twelve Street Punk anthem on this baby which were recorded between 2003 – 2005. When so many Punk bands are happy to put out any old shit the same can´t be said for SICK56. They´re one of the best bands doing the rounds in the UK at the moment. When much attention is put on the old Street Punk bands reforming it´s a shame that bands like SICK56 are left behind. Let´s face it they blow bands like the ´Last Resort´ and ´Section 5´ away. ´Punishment´ is Punk Rock with balls. Some of the tracks I´ve heard and some I haven´t but there´s not one filler on here. Nige and the lads certainly have produced a blinder here. Tracks such as ´Violence´, ´Losing The War´ and ´Got A Revolution´ just have to be pogoed too! Production is top notch and the CD booklet is well put together. There´s also a video for the song ´Violence´ which is good quality and has an important message at the end of it. A good job all round here. (JSNTGM) 10/10

PUNK4LIFE
Punishment’ is SICK56’s second album release and where their first album was good, this one is even better. The angry aggressive vocals of Nige are still as upfront and in your face as on the first album. The raw guitar, grumbling bass and pummelling drums are still there too. Why change a formula that obviously works? There are 12 tracks on the album and with good lyrics, aggressive vocals, great tunes and good production they won’t go far wrong with this release. I myself thought the best songs off the album were ‘Violence’, ‘Never Needed Nothin’, ‘4th Generation’, ‘Losing The War’, ‘Crash & Burn’, and ‘Nothing To Say’. Some bands stagnate but this album shows that SICK56 are moving in the right direction.

The follow up to their corrosive debut, “Recipe For Disaster”, “Punishment” has taken Sick 56 the best part of 12-months to nail down. The pace throughout is furious. Indignation seeps from every note. The guitars seethe, the vocals rally, the drums propel – & the bass secures it all to the floor like an industrial staple gun. 12-salvos of terrace chant fervour – 12-blistering condemnations of post-modern British existence “12-good reasons for making “Punishment” your number one anti-establishment purchase of the month. Full-on Punk Rock meets Power-Metal in a hail of broken blood vessels

No Front Teeth Zine
SICK56 “‘PUNISHMENT’ CD Fast-paced hardcore punk that fuses a typically British early ’80s sound with a more current American sound, it reminds me of a blend of THE SKEPTIX, THE BASTARDS, SUBVERSIVES, GBH, EXPLOITED and early UNSEEN. They are very attacking and armed with provoking subject matters and intelligent lyrics and they always keep it forceful and fast which heightens the impact of their offensive and sounds fucking good at the same time. No straying or experimenting”¦just 1000% hardcore punk rock with no over-complexities. 12 songs in half an hour, perfect length for this full-on attack. SICK56 are one of the very few contemporary British punk rock bands to shout about,Just Say No To Government Music – Marco
