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 enjoyed 12 Top 40 singles, including 'Staying Out For The Summer', 'In A Room', 'If You're Thinking Of Me' and the massive hit 'Good Enough' – officially one of the most played tracks on British radio in the last 20 years.
'What Are We Fighting For', the fifth album from the original Dodgy line-up of Nigel Clark, Mathew Priest and Andy Miller – was released on Cherry Red Records in September last year to amazing reviews and was the first collection of new material since their critically acclaimed reunion album, 'Stand Upright In A Cool Place' in 2012. It was also the first album to feature new member Stu Thoy on bass who joined the band to help them tour the last album and has managed to hang on in there ever since.
Dodgy believe 'What Are We Fighting For' – featuring Vanessa Wilson from the fantastic Ultrasound, is their best ever record, but they're not the only ones – Cenzo Townshend (Florence, U2, Primal Scream etc) who worked with Dodgy on their first ever record in 1992, heard the demos and demanded to mix some tracks. Similarly, Rob Da Bank heard two tracks and offered Dodgy a slot on the Mainstage at Bestival.
