  Sick56 / Higgins++ - New Day New Enemy
By Headwound 18 - Webzine submitted

I’ve always had a love/hate thing going on with the town of Blackpool. I like the idea of Blackpool a lot more than I like the actual place, but one thing it has done for the world is produce some good punk rock, and the second split EP from these two is no exception. Andy Higgins’ previous solo stuff never quite did it for me – he did an album a couple of years back with unaccompanied Bragg style electric guitar that seemed to be lacking a certain something (drums and bass mainly) but his side of this split again remedies that, and its bloody brilliant. The first track is basically an intro piece, then we get some anthemic punk with a truly infectious chorus in a new version of ‘Got A Revolution’, originally recorded by his old (and often very good) band Erase Today. Fellow Blackpool band SICK56 have been getting a lot of attention lately and their song ‘Losing the War’ underlines why. It’s another good fist in the air political anthem in the Contempt mould, with a strong chorus, and hints of Stubbs snarl on the vocals. This is some of the best material I’ve heard by either Higgins++ or SICK56, and if they carry on like this, I bet their next respective releases are going to be fucking superb. It’s on day-glo yellow vinyl as well, if that matters to you. From JSNTGM – see distro section 4/5.
