Lineup and Details for DODGY on Thu 20th September 2012
STAND UPRIGHT IN A COOL PLACE the new album from Dodgy was a long time coming, 15 years to be precise since the platinum selling Free Peace Sweet and from the four and five star reviews and many media plaudits the new album has received, they have successfully overcome the often tricky task of a band reinventing themselves, to make a contemporary and relevant album. Creating a sound with golden harmonies and echoes of CSN&Y and Fleet Foxes, described by The Word magazine as Laurel Canyon by way of The Malverns, a result for which the contribution by mixer Matt Pence, known for his work with the likes of Midlake and John Grant, should not be underestimated.
The first time round, 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 playlists; 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 in 1997 just before Radiohead. Not bad, considering that they also partied harder than an Ewok.
Dodgy haven't played in Aberdeen since the 90's, so this should be an exciting gig. They fly to Shetland the next day.
Catch Dodgy live this summer: Live gigs and festival appearances have always been an important part of the Dodgy experience, for many they are the perfect festival band. Summer 2012 will be no exception, with Dodgy already confirmed to appear at prestigious festivals such as BT LONDON LIVE, Camp Bestival, V Festival and Kendal Calling, as well as various other boutique festivals around the UK.
