"Barfly gig review"

Before the band appeared the crowd were treated to the rock-a-billy/brit indie sound of Filthy Whisky. They were a band that no one seemed to expect much from (aside from the crowd of well wishers and friends who were obviously there in support) but they quickly showed that they are band to keep an eye on when they return from their “summer hiatus”. Strained vocals, grooving basslines and dark lyrics all add up to one kick ass cocktail. The biggest surprise came in the encore when the lead singer did a breathless cover of The Roots Web. It’s safe to say that I wasn’t the only person in the crowd raising their eyebrows in amazement. - Clink Music Magazine

"Track of the Day - Borderline"

It would be oh so wrong, to not even consider opening the Jack Daniels whilst pouring over the aptly named Filthy Whisky, genius! So, if I make less sense than usual, then you know who to blame … the editor?! Today’s TOTD brings you four lads from the big smoke (Smokes and beers = heaven). Comprising of Oli, Chris, Jay and Jess and with only a handful of material to their name, you’d assume an unfinished raw groove to their Rock sound … not so; single “Borderline” has a measured, classic control to its intimate soft edges.

The tentative tempo evolves around the infectious overlapping riffs, controlled enough to endear itself to the qualities of their lead singer’s almost yearning, passionate tone, and backed further by a tenacious subtle drum line. A certain swagger builds to this infectious, melodic Rock arrangement. Indeed emotive enough to infest the mind, it’s that good, take a listen.
If you think this is more Glenfiddich than White Lightning, check out the lads out. Or catch them touring London (Bull & Gate, Kentish Town / Dingwalls) this March, promoting this very same single. The boys have talent, check them out. -


Still working on that hot first release.



Filthy Whisky were originally conceived by singer Digs in a quiet London suburb and began the writing of a repertoire of songs with an intimate and melodic intent. The band have developed into a fully formed collective infusing their wide ranging influences to create a sound reminscent of late '60s rock but with very much a modern sensibiltiy in the vein of such contempoaries as Kings of Leon, Muse, Queens of the Stone Age and Raphael Saadiq; driving R&B rythms, distorted guitars and falsetto vocals all enveloped within an infectious melody represents what this group is about.
