Taking their name from the main character in cult 90s TV series "Twin Peaks", THE DALE COOPERS grew to become arguably Ashford's most successful contribution to the 90s underground Indie scene. Hard work and regular touring saw them play many venues across Kent and London, both as support and headliners.

Shamelessly eclectic, the band's music was hard to pin down to any one style, but was constantly compared to other female-fronted bands of the time, such as THE CRANBERRIES, SLEEPER, ECHOBELLY etc.

For more information, see the band's MySpace page.

Ben Watson later started Zebra 3 Records, releasing music by many local artists.
