This album was actually released three weeks ago, but is just too good not to give some praise to. During the Britpop era of the mid 90s, Dodgy were often mistaken for bandwagon jumpers attempting to capitalise on the success of Oasis and Blur, when in reality they were the first ever group to be described as “Britpop” in the music press. In fact, Oasis were actually one of their support acts a few years earlier. ‘Staying Out For The Summer‘ and ‘Good Enough‘ became classics of the decade, and the band scored a number of other chart hits that are still very fondly remembered to this day. But success took its toll and as the buzz around Britpop faded out, frontman Nigel Clark decided to make an exit, leaving drummer Mathew Priest and guitarist Andy Miller to continue under the Dodgy banner with an ill-fated five piece line up, which inevitably didn’t last too long. When the original trio reunited in the late 2000’s, it was obvious that the musical chemistry between the three men was impossible to replace. A few years later in 2012 they released their first album in over 15 years, the critically acclaimed ‘Stand Upright In A Cool Place‘. The band were applauded for their integrity and their desire to grow up rather than simply repeat the past. Their sound had appropriately matured along with them.
