Artist Info


Image from Discogs
Powered by Audioscrobbler™Pulco was the recording name used by Welsh musician and artist Ash Cooke (previously in 90s Welsh group Derrero).

Making home recordings on cheap tape players and 4–Tracks since his youth, Cooke showed a love of all things lo-fi. Initially making his mark in 90s Welsh group Derrero, Cooke continued to release albums under the Pulco banner for the best part of ten years in amongst the chaos and busyness of his regular life.

During his time in Derrero, the band released three critically acclaimed albums and toured with the likes of Super Furry Animals, Catatonia, Sebadoh and Granddaddy as well as collaborating on the film ‘Beautiful Mistake’ with John Cale. The band also recorded sessions for the legendary John Peel .

Subsequently, Cooke was content to shun the big stages for the comfort of his wordrobe studio only venturing out to play live when there’s something new to say. Assembling musical bits and pieces together using a hand held recorder and Dictaphone Pulco songs feature cheap keyboards, toy instruments, iphone apps and just about anything else that Ash can lay his hands on to add something interesting into the mix. Poems, field recordings and interruptions by the kids are common place. It is music for music’s sake with no pomp or ceremony!

Pulco music has been described as left-field folk with a sketchbook feel, collecting thoughts and random events that have the child-like innocence of someone exploring the world with fresh eyes

“Ashley Cooke is rarity. In years to come experts in eclectic cultural references will mention the name Pulco with great fondness” - Plastic Magazine
