The legendary Pete Wylie, man of many WAH! names, is a singer/musician/composer who emerged from the Liverpool post-punk scene in the early 80’s.
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.
His string of hits includes The Story Of The Blues, 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.
Great songs. GUITARS! That voice...
