Why Bother is an unearthed, long-forgotten, and unreleased album that was due to see the light-of-day some years ago, by The Sticks; a Brighton institution. A rarely spotted, but much-loved group which shares members with The Pheromoans and King Alfred Man of Leisure. They are a stripped down garage party band, they bash drums, sway on the bass and claw at guitar - often swapping over instruments between songs live - and yelp with melodic abandon and delight. The Sticks were once dubbed as 'semi-amateur', this may be true. With cheap, unreliable equipment they manage to tease out a cacophony of crashing drums and raucous guitar melodies.

The key elements of the trio's sound are undoubtedly drawn from the rudimentary ideas found in the more inept efforts of mid-sixties teen bands such as The Chimney Sweeps and The Keggs, as well as their modern day equivalents The Black Lips, The Coachwhips or The Hospitals, say.
