Sawed Off Sick is comprised of Rob Heartthrob (Slick 57, Ghoultown, The Doubledowns, Grant Jones & the Pistol Grip Lassos), Nikatomic (The Atomic Fiends, Phantom Rockers), Chris Parrish (Hotrod Hillbillies, Eerie Lane), and Panther City Princess, aka PCP (Dallas Derby Devils). These Texas rockers have been tearin’ it up since 2005 with the release of their first album, entitled Five-Star (2006), which introduced their brand of raw Texas rock and psychobilly with five tracks of fury, including their swanky hit, “Hell Tonight.”
After much touring and radio airplay, the album proved to be a success and the band went into the studio in late 2006 to begin work on a new album. SOS just released this second effort, entitled Den of Iniquity (2007). With twelve brain-frying tracks of psychobilly, rock, and country-influenced tracks, Den of Iniquity provided great success for the Texas quintet.
The Dallas Observer described Sawed Off Sick’s album, Den of Iniquity, as “a hard rock lover’s dream. Singer Nikatomic’s voice draws allusions to everyone from Diamond Dave to Ronnie James Dio, with scuzzy guitars and a rockabilly backbeat to boot.” (Chelsea Mueller, 28September2007)
In The Fort Worth Weekly, SOS’s Den of Iniquity was described as “anthemic zombie-surf arena-rock . . . Chris Parrish is game on the upright, plucking at and slapping his bass like an angry loan shark putting the squeeze on a deadbeat.” (Caroline Collier, 19December2007)
Music available for purchase through CDBaby.com and iTunes.
