If you were into the C-86 scene, perhaps bought the odd Indie Top 20 compilation, watched Indie Week on the chart show, or listened to DJs such as John Peel, Janice Long and Andy Kershaw then chances are you are probably familiar with Mighty Mighty.
Mighty Mighty formed in Birmingham nd came to prominence with the song “Law” from the NME C86 compilation. They released a series of essential singles such as “Throwaway”, “Everybody Knows The Monkey”, “Built Like a Car”, “Is There Anyone Out There?”, “One Way” and “Maisonette” between 1986-1988. After the release of their debut album “Sharks” in 1988 the band split but the interest in Mighty Mighty has remained high with 3 compilations on the Vinyl Japan label and a career defining compilation “Pop Can!” on Cherry Red Records in 2013
Support comes from Davey Woodward – once the lead singer of The Brilliant Corners, Experimental Pop Band, & Karen. Davey brings his latest group Davey Woodward and the Winter Orphans to the 100 Club for the first time after the release of their 2018 eponymously titled debut album.
The gig takes place at London 100 Club, on Thursday 6th June 2019.
