On the way to work today I was thinking about all of the great Brit-pop bands forgotten in the wake of the tabloid-worthy antics of the battling Gallagher Brothers of Oasis. One that immediately came to mind was Dodgy, a group that had considerable success in England in the mid-90s but remains relatively unknown here in the States. The band scored three top 20 hits in the U.K. with their biggest chart success coming with Good Enough, which reached #4 in 1996. All three of the LPs with the original members (Nigel Clark (bass), Andy Miller (guitar) and Mathew Priest (drums) are recommended: The Dodgy Album (1993), Homegrown (1995) and Free Peace Sweet (1996). If you'd like a sampling of the band's singles output, check out Ace A's & Killer B's.
Here's one of my fave tracks from the band, from their 1994 Homegrown LP, Staying Out for the Summer.
