The Deetees grew from a chancer with a guitar who liked to argue about politics, into four chancers who like to argue about politics, media, celebrity, obsession with image and many other targets. It has taken a while to find the perfect line up, but since August 2013, we have had this in place, with gigs coming thick and fast. Desi Best was the original chancer, before being joined by James Riddell on bass, then Peter McGowan on drums. Gerry Slavin, on guitar, has become, in a short time, our missing link.
You Were Right, an EP of four songs, released in early 2014. ABCs are us is an album recorded with only Desi remaining from that version of the band. This coming year will see us expanding our reach, and continuing to write songs towards recording a full studio album.
