We're delighted to announce what we hope will be the first of a unique new range of Whisky Priests song-based T-Shirts, each designed by our amazingly talented official illustrator Helen Temperley (Winkin Bitsy Illustration). Launching with 'The Raven' featuring an astounding front print illustration inspired by the song and a back print featuring the song lyrics, should this initial design prove successful, we will be following it up with further designs to create a unique collection (the next 3 are already in the planning stages).
Please let us know what you think of this new range - your feedback is always invaluable to us.
In the meantime, you can order 'The Raven' T-shirt (with a variety of sizes to choose from) from either of the following shops : -

Great saving - ONLY £29.99 plus p&p - all items retail seperately at £52.96. Essentially, you pay the normal price for MAD MARTINS and get the other 3 items FREE...
The Gary Miller "Christmas & New Year Limited Offer Budget Price CD Set Bundle" contains the following items : -
MAD MARTINS - 50-track 3xCD housed in 104-Page Deluxe Book (retails seperately at £29.99)
"Gaze in awe and wonder. What is this mysterious artefact? To call it a triple-CD concept album is to demean it. An archive of myth and legends of lost hard-times in ye North East? A History Channel biopic movie for the mind? The theatre of the inner and outer ear? A coffee-table art book loaded to the seams with antique print curios, spoken-word verse of sinister and nefarious explouts, and engravings of exquisite quality? It's all these... and more. A veritable triumph!" ***** (Andrew Darlington, R N R, UK, Vol. 2, No.68, March 2018).
"To say that this is a masterpiece is still an understatement." Rating: 10/10 (Kev Rowland, FRaME Music, UK, March 11, 2018).
"Mad Martins is a magnificent piece of work, transcending both the traditional ideas of folk-rock as represented by The Whisky Priests and the established view of what a singer-songwriter should be." (Dai Jeffries, Folking.com, UK, March 16, 2018).
"A genuinely stimulating cultural artefact, born of an inspired collaboration of like-minded creative artists... an extraordinary work, an educational experience that both informs and (royally) entertains. It also happens to contain some great music and songwriting that bears both specific relevance to its subject and a definite resonance for our times." (David Kidman, FRUK, December 27, 2017).
"A triple entity which is both entertaining and fascinating. The combination of an array of musical genres... maintains a high level of interest throughout. It’s a rewarding and constantly enjoyable experience... Carve out some time. Set up a supply of your chosen beverage. Turn off your phone…and work through the CDs in order, entire, while losing yourself in the book. You’ll be transumed, lost in the visionary world of another place and time. And, trust me, it won’t be long before you’re longing to go there again." (Nigel Schofield, Tykes' News, UK, Summer 2018).
FAIR FLOWERS AMONG THEM ALL (THE MAD MARTINS INSTRUMENTALS) - 20-track CD (retails seperately at £9.99)
"This is a wonderful relaxing folk release with an emphasis on dulcimer and mandolin, with Northumbrian pipes and accordion... and is a great way of understanding the style of music being used by Gary and others. For any lovers of traditional folk music, fans of The Whisky Priests, this is simply essential. Why not give it a listen and see what I am making such a fuss about?" Rating: 10/10 (Kev Rowland, FRaMe Music, UK, March 11, 2018).
"The instrumental CD, whilst not essential to the telling of the stories, is a worthwhile addition to the set as it gives the opportunity to hear the well played tunes without dialogue overlaid." (Joe Grint, FATEA, UK, January, 2018).
GARY MILLER 'REFLECTIONS ON WAR' - 10-track CD - retails seperately at £9.99
"His lyrics are of the same quality as those popular WW1 songs from Scotsman-turned-Aussie Eric Bogle. Musically he is branching out in different directions, there are tracks we're used to from the Priests, but he is also covering new ground... Gary Miller is back on track." Walkin' T, Folkworld, Germany.
"What can I say - The Whisky Priests were one of the great under-rated bands, and Gary is one of the greatest songwriters the UK has ever produced and again, much under-rated. This album is sheer genius. Buy it now." Anders Moskus
GARY MILLER & FERRYHILL TOWN BAND 'THE DURHAM LIGHT INFANTRY' - 2-track CD Single - retails seperately at £2.99
