Sticky Filth Play The Kings Arms

Wednesday 30th June, 2010 6:12PM

"I'm gonna play music till I die". Those are the words of Craig Radford, one of the founding members of New Zealand hardcore band Sticky Filth. And to be honest, he's been true to his word so far, with this being the 25th year of the band's existence. Just think of the number of bands, singers and fads that have come and gone in that time. One thing has remained constant though and that is Sticky Filth's hardcore punk roots.

The band will be plying their craft at The Kings Arms on Friday 30th July with Cobra Khan and Oilbarrons and UTR has got you sorted if you're looking for tickets. All you need to do is head HERE.


New Zealand Hardcore . Nocturnal Design . A Way Of Life . Wear The Scars . Know The Pain . One World . One Beat . Twenty Five Years After . The Past Is History . The Future Hasn’t Happened . This Is The End Of The Beginning .

Veteran is a term bandied about rather freely these days, almost as much as legendary but if any one band deserves that mantle in this country it is hardcore punk pioneers Sticky Filth. Not many bands in New Zealand can claim a continuous existence of twenty-five years (1985-2010).

This is Sticky Filth’s 25th anniversary and with the upcoming release of their new album Fourth Domain 2010 is shaping up to be a huge year for the hardcore punk legends.

Described as a powerhouse with grim and brawny mid tempo buzzing bass lines, snotty pub rock vocals, jagged metallic shreds and head trampling drums. Sticky Filth is Craig Radford - Bass / Vocals, Chris Snowdon – Guitar / Vocals and Mark “Boot” Hill - Drums.

Conceived in 1985 by founding member Craig Radford, Chris Snowdon joined in 1987 and Mark Hill in 2000. Sticky Filth has graced the stage with bands such as the Henry Rollins Band, Bad Brains, Suicidal Tendencies, Motorhead and The Hard Ons.

They’ve seen musical trends come and go but Sticky Filth have stayed true to a formula that passionate fans will always embrace. This new album Fourth Domain is 25 years of experience and undoubtedly their best work yet.
