Pedestrienne began life as The Diesel Queens at the beginning of 1999, before having to change their name for legal reasons in January 2000. Gigging since August 1999 they have already got support acts for Aslan, Cuba and Watercress. With an original setlist over an hour and a half in length they have been headlining  regularly around Dublin as well having played a load of college venues around the country. Having successfully reached the final stages of several battle of the bands Pedestrienne also made the final cut of 30 bands out of over 300 for the Heineken / Hot Press Green Energy Band Challenge. Their first 4-track demo has received airplay on both Dave Fanning's and Uaneen Fitzsimon's shows and also got a good review in Hot Press and in the Sunday World (where Eddie Rowley described it as 'excellent' in his remix column). Jackie Hayden of Hot Press described the new material as an 'infectiously catchy modern twist on sixties merseybeat ... it's not often one comes across a young Irish band who knows what choruses are, so one can only join in'. Pedestrienne describe their music as intelligent pop music with strong folk-rock leanings, Bob Dylan and Van Morrison playing pop-rock songs, sorta. Pedestrienne are:

Peco Mc Loughlin (Vocals, Guitars, Harmonica)
Seoirse Doherty (Bass, Backing Vocals)
D.C. Piano (Keyboards, Backing Vocals)
Gabhain Neary (Drums)
