DEFERRED SUCESS are a 1,2,3,4 and sometimes 5-piece folk/punk/rock/anything-goes band from the depths of Essex consisting of Paul Doozer’ Short, Chris Davison and Richard Benfield and some times others. Honest, infectious lyrics (written by Doozer) with exceptional accompaniment from Chris and Richard on bass, guitars and harmonica. DS has toured all over the UK/Ireland and Europe as well as support for THE KLAXONS, GET CAPE WEAR CAPE FLY, MILLION DEAD, BAD MANNERS, SCROOBIUS PIP, PAMA INTERNATIONAL & THE LEVELLERS.
The band pride themselves on their ability and passion to play everywhere and anywhere; Glastoberry Festival, car parks, squats, campfires, festivals, back of vans, queues, the street… in a download world of media solitude, DS like to give music back to the people.
