Sick of it All at 8th Annual Musink Tattoo Fest

Sick of it All
8th annual Musink Festival
at the Orange County Fair & Exposition Center

Long-standing and influential hard-core N.Y. punkers, Sick of it All, tore up the Friday night MusInk stage with their “balls-out” bombastic barrage. Laying waste to the stage while stirring up a cyclone in the pit, the veteran four-man unit struck an imposing presence. Seems while some bands wither, others just get better, stronger, and tighter, and this performance placed them firmly in the latter category. Lead vocalist Lou Koller set the crowd afire with verbal grenades while his brother, lead guitarist Pete Koller, shredded sound into sharp-edged shrapnel with wicked guitar licks. This guitarist’s proficiency is matched by his intense athleticism, as he punctuates his riffs with sky-high jumps that could out-do a man half his age. Meanwhile, bassist Craig Setari keeps their sound grounded with a thundering low end, and drummer Armand Majidi’s perfectly-timed rhythmic assault rings out with sonic dissidence.

Not bad for a band formed in the late 1980’s. See kids, this is how it’s done, with fire and passion that are ageless. Their moniker Sick of it All perfectly captures the ethic of their sound. They have always had a compelling voice and a unique vision, and they plan to share it with the public for just as long as they can. This powerful quartet was the perfect warm-up for Rancid
