The 1985 debut 45 from Australia's SICK THINGS (recorded in 1981) remains in a class by itself for dirty, vile recording quality, and for bleakness one giant step beyond complete hopelessness. "Committed To Suicide / Police" features the vocals of one Dugald McKenzie, a (now-deceased) legend whom who've celebrated here on the 'Twang before for his work with VENOM P. STINGER later on down the road. I found out about them in the early 90s when someone put out a great LP of their recordings - mostly demos - called "The Sound of Silence". It's some real-ass hardcore ear-shredding, something that could likely find a home with noise fanatics, garage fiends, weirdo metal freaks & of course those devoted to ripping hardcore punk. SPK fans and LEFTOVERS fans can finally break bread together!
