Dodgy Acoustic + One Sided Horse
Dodgy started life 27 years ago. In that time the “Staying out for the Summer” cult indiepop hitmakers have released six albums, countless singles, toured the world, criss-crossed the UK, as well as managing to take a well-earned break for 10 years. Now, back in action, Dodgy continue to release critically-acclaimed music and perform live to thousands of people every year.
for this intimate acoustic show, Dodgy’s Nigel Clark, Andy Miller and Stu Thoy will perform stripped back versions of their classic hits, delving into the Dodgy vaults and unearthing forgotten gems and and the most requested songs from recent albums, including ‘Stand Upright In A Cool Place’ and current LP ‘What Are We Fighting For’. Delivering songs with tales of life on the road, from one of the UK’s most active touring bands.
“Dodgy have always loved acoustic shows, the songs are written and rehearsed in acoustic format but they rock and we are loud – this is a chance to hear the songs in their melodic, harmonious glory!” – Nigel Clarke, Dodgy frontman
One Sided Horse started life in 2013 when Mark Whiteside, the singer/drummer with Evil Blizzard decided to try his hand singing at the front rather than the back.
After buying a guitar and a chord book, he wrote a set of simple emotional songs that formed his first solo CD. A chance meeting at a gig with Embrace bass player Steve Firth opened up his songs to more people, and we can’t wait to hear his work performed at Band on the Wall.
