Once upon a time in Falmouth Art School, there were 2 songwriters. They were Andy Fung and Ashley Cooke. One day they met a keyboard player, Mary Wycherley and bassist Dave Hirst. Thus, Derrero was born. Over the next few years Derrero released several records, became a favourite of John Peel and Steve Lamacq, hosted a month long art exhibition, toured with Super Furry Animals, Catatonia, Sebadoh, Gorky’s Zygotic Mynci, and Grandaddy, and picked up a mass of critical acclaim along the way.
Derrero appearances have been few and far apart over the last 10 years or so but they appear at Sŵn Festival to celebrate 20 years of Music Box and 10 years of Sŵn Festival.
