The Whisky Priests were a folk-rock band hailing from Sherburn Village, County Durham , England. Twin brothers Gary and Glenn Miller (who were once referred to by a UK music journalist as "the Joe Strummer and Mick Jones of Folk Music") formed The Whisky Priests in August 1985, aged just eighteen. In the space of only five years, between 1992 and 1996, The Whisky Priests released five albums of new material, each to critical international acclaim, and played over 600 concerts in sixteen different countries, whilst appearing many times on TV and radio throughout Europe. The band continued recording and performing until 2004.
In 2018, The Whisky Priests briefly reunited for a 10-date ‘Bloody Well Back!’ European Reunion Tour that aimed to recapture the original essence of the band and celebrate its enduring legacy.
To coincide with the tour, Whippet Records released ‘Bloody Well Everything! (The Complete Works 1985-2000)’, a limited edition 12-disc CD Box Set and various merch items - which was where I came in.
Below is a gallery of merchandise items and stage dressing, and a couple of little promo videos I designed for the tour. I was also part of a two-person tour photography/videography team alongside Geoff Siddle.
