Sick Things E.P.

Track list:

  • 1 Bondage Boy
  • 2 Street Kids
  • 3 Anti-Social Disease
  • 4 Sleeping With The Dead

4 track 7″ reissue of the Sick Things EP that was recorded on the 29th of September 1977 at Spaceward studios in Cambridge and was due to be released on Raw Records as RAW 28. It never happened. It eventually came out in 1983 on Chaos Records.

Lee Woods from Raw Records had this to say on the PUNK77 website

“They had two tracks on Raw Deal compilation ‘Bondage Boy’ and ‘Street Kids’. (Delightful lyrics. I don’t know about Charlie’s relationships what with bondage, sadomasochism, whore shagging v.d and sleeping with the dead !!!!)

These two tracks plus two others (Antisocial Disease & Sleeping With The Dead) were to be released in 1979 as Raw 28 as an ep but resurfaced in fact in 1983 on Chaos records as The Legendary Sick Things. Dire picture cover – great music.

“Some say you’ve got the pox / Some say you’ve got vd / But if you got either baby / You ain’t gonna fuck me / …Keep that cock right away / You’re anti social you can stay.”
Antisocial – Sick Things

Lee Woods, Raw Records owner, on the Sick Things.

“After the Killjoys record was released in July 1977, demo tapes started to arrive. I put an advert in the classifieds of Music Maker (in those days the main paper for musicians), and the telephone never stopped ringing. One of the phone calls came from a girl who called herslf “Charlie”. She worked for a record pressing plant in the West London area. In a call that probably lasted 45 minutes her personality was so sparkling that I agreed to record her band without ever seeing or hearing them. They were called The Sick Things!”

First pressing on Yellow vinyl, also on Black
