Imagine the soundtrack to a Quentin Tarantino film about Tom Waits’ life, set in the East Midlands. 94 Gunships are a ramshackle 5 piece from Nottingham who’s music ranges from whimsical blues pop, scuffed up Jazz folk and gravelly funk rock.

The London/Nottingham duo, Whisky Stain are known predominantly for their filthy hooks, catchy vocal melodies and huge sonic presence. Performing a blend of bass driven dance influenced stompers through to blues drenched guitar based thrillers. Previously featured on Sky’s hit series Ray Donovan; their track The Lord’s Revolver demonstrates perfectly their sonic identity. Intoxicated with heavy riffs drowning in fuzz, pounding drums and the harmonies of a bittersweet gospel hymn proclaiming the beginning of the end, this is Whisky Stain’s calling card.

“It starts in a place I would never really want to talk about and ends in a much better place that I’d like to shout about from the highest of points. I wanted to make an acoustic album, as it is as basic as it gets. Tony Wright is accompanied by Milly Evans on guitar and backing vocals, and Steve Clarkson on percussion. Led by the anthemic lead single “Self Portrait’, it sets the tone for the album which takes the listener on a rollercoaster journey of highs and lows.
