There's a wonderful interview with Whisky Priests collaborator Keith Armstrong (anyone got our 1995 album 'Bleeding Sketches' featuring Keith's incredible lyrics?) in the latest blog by North East freelance journalist (film-maker, photographer and more!) Gary Alikivi, in which Keith tells some great stories, elaborates on his background as a major poet alongside his tireless work in promoting and developing North East culture through the arts, and talks in detail about his connections with The Whisky Priests and his further collaborations with Whisky Priests lead singer/songwriter Gary Miller (e.g. Mad Martins). It's well worth a read.
Read the interview here.

Congratulations to Gary for being awarded 'Most Ambitious Release of 2018' in US Magazine Shite 'n' Onions's 'Best of 2018' for his acclaimed epic project Mad Martins - a 50-track 3xCD and 104-page book (which also features major contributions from one or two other Whisky Priests members). It's very satisfying and gratifying for him to be acknowledged for stretching the boundaries of his creativity and for something that he and others put a lot of passion and commitment into.
You can order Mad Martins here.
In the meantime, further news on the future development of Mad Martins coming soon...
