Here's a lovely little trailer for Lone Pine Pictures' documentary film 'The Little Count', about Polish-born diminutive entertainer to the courts of Europe, Count Józef Boruwłaski, who lived out his retirement years in Durham - featuring The Whisky Priests song 'The Little Count' (from 'Bleeding Sketches', 1995, lyrics by Keith Armstrong, music by Gary Miller). We're looking forward to seeing the full film when it's finally released - Class!

Last night 4 of us - Michael Stephenson, Sticks, Gary Miller and Mick Tyas (not the full band!) - got together at The Pigpen Rehearsal Studios to run through a few songs. The band's official photographer and visual artist Helen Temperley was on hand to take a few pics.

Here is a small sample (to view more click here)...

Here's a wonderful video clip of The classic Whisky Priests song 'The Durham Light Infantry' (written by Gary Miller in 1985 and originally released on the band's debut album 'Nee Gud Luck' in 1989) performed by Mike Mcgrother with the Infant Hercules Male Voice Choir, at Arc, Stockton-on-Tees, on 28th July 2018, as part of 'Wildcats of Kilkenny' frontman and Teesside community engineer Mike McGrother's fantastic show 'The Wild Rover - Rambling On - Just Like George #1246', which tells the true story of George R. W. Hunter, a private in the Durham Light Infantry from Stockton who was tragically executed for desertion during the First World War...

Mike McGrother's Durham Light Infantry

Posted on 29 July, 2018 at 10:35 Comments comments (0)

Last night, Whisky Priests lead singer and songwriter Gary Miller caught up with former Whisky Priests member Mike Mcgrother (for anyone who doesn't know, Mike played fiddle on the band's landmark 1993 live album 'Bloody Well Live!') for the first time in many years, to witness Mike's fabulous 90-minute show 'The Wild Rover - Rambling On - Just Like George #1246', telling the true story of George R. W. Hunter, a DLI private from Stockton, tragically executed for desertion during the First World War. Gary enjoyed witnessing Mike and the Infant Hercules Male Voice Choir perform a stunning version of his song 'The Durham Light Infantry' (written in 1985 and originally recorded on The Whisky Priests debut album 'Nee Gud Luck' in 1989) as part of the show - nice one guys! Congratulations and much respect to Mike on putting together such a wonderful project.
