Chronic Sick were Bobby The "K" (music, lyrics, lead guitar, backing vocals), Greg Gory (Vocals), Arnie Barrs (bass, backing vocals) and Joe Albano (drums). Formed in 1981 in New Jersey, this Hardcore Punk band had two releases on Mutha Records : "Cutest Band In Hardcore" 12" (Mutha 002), and a self-titled 7" EP (Mutha 008) between 1982 - 83'. Read this funny review that I found on blog :

Last and definitely least The Cutest Band In Hardcore E.P. by Chronic Sick. This is the worst. The worst words. These kids should get beat up. If they want to be shocking why don't they kill themselves on stage. I think that's better than writing racist and sexist songs that will make people want to kill them anyway. We appreciate a colorful crowd so if they know what's good for them they won't play New York again.
-Javi Savage, from Big City zine #4, May/June 1983

My comment on that review is - BULLSHIT REVIEW. Why? Because their songs are not racist or sexist - actually they are making fun of all that in their songs, as I can hear by listening their music. And their music is very great if you ask me and they stage look is in same way provocative as it was the Sex Pistols look, as I can see that on some band-on-stage pictures, but that Javi Savage review, doesn't shock me, because I understand that on this planet were and still are some people, that really can't figure out PUNK MUSIC & MOVEMENT, because they try to look at it trough some rough definitions and not by some feeling........... Anyway, enough with my opinions, here is download link and figure out by yourself is good or bad this band to you - if you wish of course ;) Cheers!
