Derek Pascoe (born 1957) is a British musician now based in Australia. He was the vocalist and saxophonist in Flintlock.[1] He appeared in a two-part episode of the children's science fiction programme The Tomorrow People, "The Heart of Sogguth", [2] in which the band's music was used to revive an ancient demon.[3]

The Australian Music Centre described Pascoe as "among the leading free improvisers in Adelaide, whose rigorous approach to musical self-discipline gives a profound assurance to his rare extended solo public performances".[4] He is a member of the Jazz Performance academic staff of the Elder Conservatorium of Music (teaching saxophone, improvisation and small ensemble) [5] and plays sax in the spoken word/impro outfit Max-Mo.

He is the father of writer, stand-up comedian and actress Sara Pascoe.
