Artist Info

The Deirdres

The DeirdresPowered by Audioscrobbler™The Deirdres were a Derby, United Kingdom based band often likened to a happy clappy school choir, and described as playing 'rawkus musical nonsense'.

Once located within the strange music scene of Derby, the Deirdres consisted of 7 members: Gemma Wood, Sophie Barker, Louise Croft, Robert Fairs, Russell Lomas, Keir Thomas and Amy Burchell.

The band rose to fame in October 2006 when they appeared on the BBC Antiques Roadshow programme, where they performed the theme music, much to the delight of Michael Aspell and the crowd. An appearance of Challenge TV soon followed, and the band started playing gigs later that month, making their debut at the Halloween party of the Greyhound pub in Derby. A year later, and the band released their first single 'Dinosaurs That Can Swim' on ltd edition 3 inch CDs, with Cloudberry Records, and almost a year after that the band released an EP called 'Why Do My Glasses Give You The Heeby Jeebys' with Cosy Recordings.

Three-sevenths of the band + one girlfriend (Emily Bell) played a gig in Melbourne, Australia under the name 'Can You Say Nincompoop' which included some Deirdre covers and other songs.

The band have decided by mutual consent to stop, and played their final gig at Bar One in Derby in April 2009.
