  • Here is a link to a video clip on You Tube of The Whisky Priests performing the instrumental track 'The Rising of the North' (from the band's debut album 'Nee Gud Luck' released in 1989) at the 'Chelsea' in Vienna on 17th March 2001. The majority of Whisky Priests Vienna shows took place in the much larger venue the 'Szene' and this was the only time the band played at the Chelsea (think this may have been the last show the band played in Vienna).

The line-up on this clip is Cozy Dixon on Drums, Gary Miller on Guitar, Glenn Miller on Accordion, Andy Tong on Bass, Mick Tyas on Mandolin: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r38KRj6bKeA
