Biography

Molde, Norway (1992 – present)

Di Derre is a norwegian rock band consisting of the two brothers Jo (vocal, guitar) and Knut Nesbø (guitar), Magnus Larsen jr. (bass) and Espen Stenhammer (drums). The former drummer Sverre Beyer was taken away by cancer.

Di Derre was formed in 1992 and most of their songs are about places, people and events tied to the city of Molde, where all the members are from.

Their debut album “Den Derre med Di Derre” was released in 1993.

Their commercial breakthrough came in 1994 with the album “Kvinner og klær” (Women and Clothes). It was later renamed to “Jenter Og Sånn” (Girls and Stuff) after a legal threat by a magazine with the same name.

“Jenter og sånn” was succeded by three more albums (two studio albums and a Best of-collection) and their success culminated with the album “Gym” that came out in 1996. “Gym” is considered the best of their albums.

Their last album entitled “Slå Meg På” (Turn Me On) came out in 1998. It reaped great reviews all around the country.

Since 1998, the band have kept a low profile, only playing a few concerts here and there.

Jo Nesbø is still an active musician and is still holding concerts accompanied by a bass along with his guitar. He has also written a number of acclaimed novels.

The last few years the band has only played at the Molde Jazzfestival once a year, but in summer 2006 they are touring Norway which marks the end of the band. In June 2006 a best of album was released. It also features a couple of new songs along with their greatest hits.

    Trist nyhet. Hvil i fred, Knut. Har hatt glede av å se Knut og gutta live. En herlig spilleglede, og allsangfaktoren var alltid høy!

    RIP Knut Nesbø. Di Derre er dessverre blitt et veldig undervurdert band som fortjener å bli husket for mer enn "Jenter" + hva Jo Nesbø gjorde før han begynte å skrive krim. Førsteplata er jo riktig så bra (og det er nr 2 også)...

    In terms of lyrics, Di derre is the best norwegian band there is (with the possible exception of Øystein Sunde :D)

    Hah. The one band that shocks everyone when I play them.. because it is so unlike everything else I like. Di Derre is tied to my childhood and closely connected to my feeling of home, of norway.
