Dodgy were only together for seven years but in that time they sold over a million records worldwide, released three albums and 12 Top 40 singles, including 3 Top 10s and the Top 5 hit Good Enough, still a staple of the Radio 2 playlist; sold out the Brixton Academy for three nights in a row and were awarded an unprecedented 90-minute Saturday evening slot on the Pyramid stage at Glastonbury Festival.
The English trio began their climb to fame in 1992, releasing three singles on their own Bostin Records label, later signing to A&M Records, The partnership with A&M generated three albums of life affirming, beautifully crafted songs - The Dodgy Album (1993), Homegrown (1994) and Free Peace Sweet (1996).
Live performance was always integral to the Dodgy experience. When the band first formed they started the infamous Dodgy Club to ensure that the audience got more than just a band on stage. A dedicated touring band - in one 12-month period between 94/95 they played almost 250 shows - Dodgy built a devoted and loyal fan base. Their positivity and summery songs made Dodgy the perfect festival band.
In a bittersweet twist of fate, it was the dying wish of the band’s close friend and crewmember, Andy Moore that brought them back together in 2008 and they all agreed that life was too short and anyway, they had forgotten why they split up in the first place.
Since they got back together they played an extremely successful set of reunion shows culminating in an overwhelming finale at the Shepherds Bush Empire, and like prodigal sons, they have been welcomed back to the festival circuit, and to cap it all they were asked back to play Glastonbury once again.
They are slowly and surely building up enough songs for new album which they finally intend to release this year.
