The latest Tim Timebomb and Friends installment is a cover of the Sick of It All classic “Step Down”, originally taken from the legendary NYHC band’s 1994 breakthrough album Scratch the Surface. In regards to the cover song and being a Sick of It All fan, Tim states:
“I bought Sick Of It All’s first seven inch back in the late 1980s, and ever since then I’ve just always loved their unique style.
After listening to their music, and keeping up to date with what they were doing, I wrote some letters to the band, and Rancid ended up playing with them for the first time in 1993 at City Gardens in Trenton, NJ, and we’ve remained friends ever since.
Last month I saw SOIA play in Quebec, and they are as strong as ever. Simply put, they’re just built to last, and they’re still one of my favorite bands.”
