Our Story

MIGHTY LEMONS are a bunch of amateurs with varying levels of musical ability (it will be obvious when you hear them).

The immiscible synthesis of Nige’s folk influence vocal styling, the atonal jazz dissonance of Paul#1’s ukulele, the hard-rocking finger-tapping of Martin’s off-tune solid body ukulele, the lazy rhythmic bunk-bunking pudgy-fingered approach to Leigh’s ukulele strumming, the low-in-the-mix-in-case-he-screws-up ukulele of new boy Paul#2, Pete's rubber stringed bassiness and drummer Olly’s ferocious double-bass pedal power-pop style (plus the occasional wibbly-wobbliness of Nige's Theremin) has grown into a unique, taut, furious fruity sound. 

Live, MIGHTY LEMONS are undoubtedly an exciting band. This septet of humungous fruitiness has the ability to hold an audience spellbound with their impassioned and unabashed juxtaposition of melodic intricacy and comedy rock intensity, crafted perfectly into a carefully-weighted mixture of pop sensibility and rock angularity that challenges the listener to resist singing along. And all that.
