  • Mighty Mighty est un groupe de rock indépendant britannique, actif du milieu des années 1980 à 1988, fondé à Birmingham.
  • Mighty Mighty were an indie band formed in Birmingham, England in the mid-1980s. Showing influences from Postcard Records bands such as Orange Juice, they came to prominence when featured on the NME's C86 compilation, at around the same time that they released their debut single "Everybody Knows The Monkey". This was soon followed by a 12" single - "Is There Anyone Out There?" before the band signed to Chapter 22 Records, releasing a string of well-received singles and the album Sharks in 1988. With their brand of indie pop giving way to American influenced rock and shoegazing, they split in 1988.Singer Hugh once said during an interview that the difference between Mighty Mighty and The Smiths was that "they write two-minute pop songs and we write three-minute pop songs".[citation needed]Continuing interest in the band saw the reissue of Sharks in 2000, the release of a compilation album of BBC session tracks in 2001, and two compilations of singles and unreleased tracks in 2000 and 2001. They reformed for the Indietracks music festival in 2009.They played Popfest Berlin in 2010, followed by Firestation Records of Berlin issuing their 'lost second album' on vinyl and CD, 25 years after it was recorded.In 2013 Cherry Red Records released a major double CD compilation entitled 'Pop Can - the definitive collection 1986-88'.
