Derrieres Short Info

After years of playing in bands of various genres Nathan Robinson (guitar, lead vox, ex part-time bingo caller) and Liam Pringle (bass, semi-lead vox, Portuguese born plumber) decided to start a group playing no nonsense music without any construct of set genre. Being in their early thirties they found juggling family time and work with the band hard but soon they realised that this band was the one thing ethereal in this mundane life, so the next step was finding a drummer with the same ideas. Four drummers later they found him in the shape of Bobby Shanks jnr (drums, backing vox, fourth generation Scotch myth and funny man). Now they really started finding their groove. And that groove comes out of them sounding like a raw yet well written barrage of three minute sagas that dont need the use of guitar pedals, effects or any of the other gimics that make up a lot of the music on the airwaves.
It is this duality of a none grandiose simple sound mixed with complex well crafted songs that makes Derrieres a band that doesnt claim to be the best in the world but does do what they set out to do. And that is to play visceral, raw, structured songs in a tongue in cheek style and to have fun in the process.
They have played a string of gigs locally but most notably at Todmorden Town Hall to a sold out crowd and recently at the Night and Day Cafe in Manchester. With a few crackers already lined up for this year hopefully 2016 will catapult Derrieres out of the Calder Valley and onto a bigger stage near you. Keep 'em peeled.
