“Do you fancy starting a band?” “No, not really” This was the first of a series of positive conversations that led to the eventual birth of The Dekkoes.

Successful civil servant, Steve Bailey and slightly less successful civil servant, Ben Shoben began playing in Steve’s living room in Beckenham. They soon found that their guitars gelled well together and there was something appealing about the sound. Melodic jangly pop/rock influenced by Steve and Ben’s favorites like The Smiths, Blur, Suede and The Cure. 

The band began rehearsing in Deptford and later in Bromley, Kent with various lineups. In 2017, the first EP ‘Divide’ was released. The songs have received college radio airplay in the US and Canada. The song ‘Divide’ notably made it on to the ‘Top 25 Listening Post’ of Tom Robinson’s ‘Fresh on the Net’ and featured on the ‘Best of British Unsigned’ Radio Show.
