Sciatic Nerve are a band with a line up that is born of members of some of the scenes best loved bands, the outfit is comprised of members of The Swingin’ Utters, Nothington, Western Addiction and Cobra Skulls, but if you were expecting a recreation of the sounds from any of those bands you’ll be disappointed as Sciatic Nerve are not the result of a nostalgic trip into any of the members past or present recordings, they are a completely different beast from any of the members well known outfits. Sciatic Nerve will be released through Gunner Records on limited edition red and clear vinyl, as well as digitally, on the 29th September 2017.

The album’s title track kicks in with a forty nine second introduction that embodies the best of old school hardcore, and from this point we’re away into an album that owes a hefty debt to that scene, one that is done and dusted in a shade under twenty minutes. There are moments that veer away from the hardcore assault, Get Away has the feel of the best garage inspired bands and Things I Can Look At and With Who You Go slow the pace down but if anything up the intensity. For the most part Sciatic Nerve is a headlong blast of reckless hardcore inspired punk rock that any fan of the likes of The Bronx, Minor Threat and Black Flag will need to add to their collection.

It must be said that for a band that is formed from veterans of the punk scene Sciatic Nerve makes a pleasant change from the trend for acoustic albums that are veering towards Americana, country and introspection. Sciatic Nerve are living proof that you can grow old disgracefully without being dependent on your past glories and they have released an an album that bears no resemblance to any of the members former outfits, and for me that makes Sciatic Nerve an all the more impressive and original release from punk’s old school.
