Next Big Thing Competition - Semi Final 1: The Mighty Young + Escape To Paris + The Nuclear Weasels + The Broken Rebels + The Harrowbrooks + Lucid Uprising + Grace The Skies
The Mighty Young are a three piece garage rock band hailing from the south of Birmingham formed in 2010.
Drawing influences from the blues of Robert Johnson and Howling Wolf, the lo-fi sound of The Stooges and The White Stripes, and the flailing hailing row created by Hendrix and his disciples, the band deliver a modern take on the blues that any music fan will find it hard not to love.

Self described as, “it’s hard to put a finger on it, you’ll have to listen to it to get the idea”.
Formed in 2009, they have been gigging solidly ever since, spreading quickly through Shropshire and Mid-Wales, gaining support on the way.
The Nuclear Weasels tour dates
