One of the things we wanted to do for the Whisky Priests 'Bloody Well Back!' Reunion Tour was to have a walk on/intro tune, and Mick came up with an absolute cracker. This soon developed further, into a short film to pay homage to our home county/region with an intro video to be played before each gig, where facililities made it possible. The video was massively well recieved by the audiences that saw it, and we'd love all our fans to see it, so here it is! Called 'The Shift', it chronicles a day in the life of a North East miner, from dawn to the end of his shift and his thoughts and feelings. A huge amount of work went into making it and we are really proud of it. Hope you enjoy it..... Oh, and play it LOUD!
