Following the success of their recent comeback album, Stand Upright In A Cool Place and the fact that this year marks the 20th anniversary of the release of The Dodgy Album, the band’s debut LP, Dodgy performed a series of live dates through May and June, highlighting the ‘now’ and ‘then’ of the band performing both albums in full, called the Back to Back Tour.
Dodgy will launch their brand new Back to Back album at the London Jazz Cafe on Saturday 23 November 2013.
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 Staying Out For The Summer, In A Room, If You’re Thinking Of Me and the Top 5 hit Good Enough, still a staple of the radio playlists.
They 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 who had just defeated the evil galactic empire.
