Ov Wires spotlight Whiskey For The Wounded at Latest Music Bar





  • Brighton

Overhead Wires Presents



WHISKEY FOR THE WOUNDED is the tangled, drunken knot at the heart of Brighton Songwriter David T. M. Vine. A mangled clump of skewed autobiography, half-remembered nightmares, Bukowskian poetry and single-malt. Regrets, apologies and crowns of thorns.

"Love songs for the deranged" 

Whiskey for the Wounded have been playing together for nearly 3 years, releasing their first, self-titled EP in July 2014. In that time they have supported established artists such as James Yorkston, Jim Noir and Treetop Flyers as well as local artists such as Ed Prosek and Bird Eats Baby. 

Whilst that first release was essentially a solo singer-songwriter with a backing band, new EP ‘A Drop of Blood in a Bowl of Milk’ embraces the group dynamic. Taking influence from Sigur Ros, Elliott Smith and Bon Iver, ‘A Drop of Blood in a Bowl of Milk’ is a darker, more progressive record with a more pronounced electronic influence.

Support from:

Meg Lawrenson is a folk-pop singer/songwriter originally from Southampton, with a focus on lyrically intimate music. Her brand new E.P "Don't Fall In Love" is due to be released in the coming year; which contains songs with a real, heartfelt expression of the raw emotion that love and heartbreak bring.

Fronted by blues artist Jake Mackay, Jonnie and the Vipers are a Brighton band that combine country, blues and 50s rock n roll with garage rock and alternative rock influences.

It's a beautiful listed building on two floors combining the best of old and new Brighton. On the walls downstairs is a magical Paris skyline painted by Lisa Dickson, which creates an unforgettable bohemian, Moulin Rouge effect and everyone from Amy Winehouse to The Kooks has graced the stage.

Upstairs the restaurant bar has a glorious skylight and is cool and spacious. Both floors have full PA and lights. It's only 50 yards from the pier practically on Brighton seafront and holds 200 people. Unlike most other venues it is available on Fridays and Saturdays. It's the perfect party venue.
