Pete Wylie and The Mighty Wah!
Part time rock star - full time legend!

Seminal Scouse maverick who, along with Ian McCulloch and Julian Cope, pioneered the Eighties art-indie scene. His debut gig was at the legendary Eric's in Liverpool - the night it was raided and closed for ever.

He bounced back with a series of bands - Wah! Heat, Wah! and The Mighty Wah! - and had a string of hits includes The Story Of The Blues (SINGLE OF THE YEAR – John Peel), Come Back, Sinful, 7 Minutes to Midnight and Heart As Big As Liverpool (an anthem forever linked with the Hillsborough Justice Campaign).

These tracks confirm him as one of the finest songwriters of his generation.

He has written scores for Hurricane Films, Alex Cox and Radio 4. Staggeringly articulate, funny and wise, his TV and radio appearances include The Culture Show, BBC 4’s Pop On Trial, and any number of BBC Radio documentaries.
