• deirdres Milk Is Politics (white vinyl 7", £2.95)

    label: Cherryade

    Debut single by rising pop starlets. The Deirdres formed in 2006 and since then the enchanting Derby-based 7-piece have been spellbinding audiences up and down the country and even as far afield as Sweden and Denmark with their gloriously shambolic and spontaneous live shows and magical pop. They appeared at this 2008's IndieTracks festival, and have played gigs with the likes of Bearsuit, The Bobby McGee’s, Horowitz, MJ Hibbett and many more. The Deirdres are like a soundtrack to your dreams, a glorious, hedonistic mix of an infinite number of instruments, joyous vocals and beautifully addictive melodies. This double A-side features the stunning Milk Is Politics and the fantastic Sir Michael Of Aspel, which tells the story of the bands TV appearance on the Antiques Roadshow. “The Deirdres are actually one of modern indiepop's more original-sounding bands, similar to Bearsuit in the way they shoot out lo-fi melodies that seem utterly spontaneous… The Deirdres are so good it's poignant.” - Neil Jones, www.musicomh.com “To call them 'amateurish' is to miss the point with a big neon hula hoop… But we had fun and they had fun - that should be more than enough.” - Heaven Is Above Your Head. “The Deirdres are not a band: they are a precious poetic ideal and a vulnerable one at that. Something to be protected and cherished; something that sits outside reality. There is no calculation in what they do. Their songs are systems of resistance and those of us who dance around at their shows become part of that moment when intelligence and nonsense are finally one, as they should be." - Hey Hey Honeypop
