The Dodgy Album


2020 Charity Shop Purchases 69 - Dodgy - The Dodgy Album

I'll get in before anyone else. What do you mean THE Dodgy album.Surely half the albums in your collection are dodgy.

Right, now that's out of the way let's proceed. From 1993 on A&M  this was the debut album by lower league Britpop band Dodgy. Subtitled Dodgy and the merry motley youths of the musical uprising.

This is the first I have of them other than the occasional track on Britpop compilations.They are probably best know for the song Staying Out for the Summer. It's not on this album but I've dug it out anyway. cos that's  the kind of guy I am

Dodgy are/were Nigel Clark - bass/lead vocals, Andy Miller - guitars, backing vocals and Matthew Priest - drums,percussion and backing vocals. Simon Rogers also pitches in on Hammond organ.

I say are/were as they were active from 1990- 2002 prior to the obligatory reunion in 2007.

One that I think will impress Mr Medd

Dodgy - Lovebirds

Dodgy - Stand By Yourself

Dodgy - Staying Out for the Summer


  1. Yes! Very impressed, CC!

    You may want to look at your dates...

    1. Wiki is my reference John - not always reliable as you know
      Happy to be corrected

  2. It's OK, CC! I misread it - should've gone to Specsavers!

    1. No worries John
      It would be highly unlikely for me to make a mistake ... not!

  3. Enough Dodginess, there's not enough by the Cardiacs on these pages
