Ideal Imperfections

“Ideal Imperfections” is the third studio album from Derecho and the follow up to “Coffee and Disruption”. Whilst rock is the running theme - opening with the thumping “Summer Rain” - the album ventures into contrasting territories; with the pop driven “An Epiphany”, the haunting “Fear” and the swing version of “Pushing Me Away”.

Coffee & Disruption

"'Remembered' bursts into life, opening Coffee and Disruption. It’s a fusion of punk and rock. Lead singer Jo Ash’s vocal is a reminder of the spirit of ’76. Unlike many punk vocalists, she’s a talented singer. She delivers the lyrics with power and control. Behind her, the rest of Derecho deliver no frills rock. It’s an impressive sound. The driving, pounding rhythm section are accompanied by searing, screeching guitars. Later guitarist Mike Wheatley delivers a blistering guitar solo. That’s the finishing touch, and leaves you wanting to hear more from Derecho."  Derek Anderson
