Useless Facts (Single)
Are feelings more important than facts? Does the truth even matter anymore? We live in a world where it’s easier to spread disinformation, than information. And spreading lies is more powerful too.

Gandekko is a new TOTALLY independent band, that makes "DIY Rock" music fit for the 21st century. The band consists of three brothers: lead vocalist and keyboardist Alastair; guitarist and vocalist Kelvin; and drummer Gavin. They are based in Milton Keynes. If rock music is going to survive in the streaming era, it has to be able to compete with hip-hop, electronic dance music, and pop. At the moment, these genres are blowing rock music out of the water. The biggest reason is the way they make music; it’s quick, fast, and fresh. They don’t use expensive producers, in expensive studios, with expensive gear; but most importantly, they do things themselves.
The old way of making rock music — getting a demo ready, tracking the parts together in an expensive studio, getting a producer to add their sound to your track, having the track mixed by a big shot mixing engineer — just doesn’t work anymore. It’s old-fashioned, too slow, too expensive, and people don’t want to wait a whole year for new music.
Gandekko makes all of their “DIY Rock (Do It Yourself Rock)” music from their drummer’s bedroom, in the three-bedroom house they rent together. They have complete control over their sound; creating, recording, producing and mixing all their music themselves. They are currently in the process of finishing a self-produced DIY Rock album, which was made using tools readily available to musicians around the world.
Even though the brothers are British, they grew up in The Hague, The Netherlands. A lot of their music revolves around their grievances with the current system. In many ways it’s the best time to be alive, in other ways, it's not — the housing market is rigged, Brexit is sh#t, and politics prioritises billionaires over ordinary people.
When the dust settles on the COVID-19 pandemic, they look forward to performing their new songs live.
