Sick Bookies Short Info

Sick Bookies, of Lincoln, the UK, are a band of people who have guitars, drums, voices and on occasions, bass.

Formed in the indie/alternative/lo-fi musical style, we have released our first album '”Magnet Hopeless” (and you can hear it or download it here: www.sickbookies.bandcamp.com) and currently working on album number 2.

We formed on the basis of a mutual obsession with music and music culture. We play sonically diverse, sometimes noisey, sometimes melodic, but always literate songs alongside transcendent and improvised instrumentals.
We view these creations with equal merit and often share them along with 'songs' on our social networks.
Having spent a year moulding our sound and finding our feet and then recording our efforts we're just starting to get out there, playing in support of 'Bromheads' 'CuT' 'The Kumari' in our home town of Lincoln and Sheffield and so far the response has been overwhelmingly positive.

We've also lent our hands in soundtracking for film recently with artist Sammy Merry with 'Distort Yr Clean' https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aOhVCrh223A

We were recently picked out of the mailbag by Steve Lamacq for his BBC 6music Reccomends show ( http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b049b5zd ) and featured on numerous blogs and radio stations to positive responses and drawing flattering comparisons to Graham Coxon, Can, Grumbling Fur, Mogwai, Pink Floyd, Pavement and Sebadoh amongst many others.

Just like any culture or movement we depend on like minded people who want to let us play at their venue, share our music with friends/followers/listeners or... y'know just have a chat to us about music. We are open to hearing from anyone with any of those intentions.
