Dodgy 1

Dodgy’s comeback album from 3 years ago, STAND UPRIGHT IN A COOL PLACE, was a long time coming, 15 years to be precise since the double platinum selling ‘Free Peace Sweet’, and from the four and five star reviews and many media plaudits that were heaped upon Stand Upright…. it seems that the original line up of the band had done the impossible – to reform the band and make a contemporary and relevant album, surpassing their previous work,  testament indeed to the unique chemistry and overflowing creativity of Nigel Clark, Andy Miller and Mathew Priest. Creating a sound with “golden harmonies and echoes of CSN&Y and Fleet Foxes”, and prompting The Word magazine to say

“They’ve just made the record of their career by a country mile”

A result for which the contribution by mixer Matt Pence, known for his work with the likes of Midlake and John Grant, should not be underestimated.

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.

Since the release of Stand Upright In A Cool Place in 2012, Dodgy haven’t really stopped as live gigs and festival appearances have always been an important part of the Dodgy experience, for many they are the perfect festival band.  The band have been ripping it up at most of the festivals worth their salt, such as Feastival, BT LONDON LIVECamp Bestival, V Festival, Glastonbury, Wychwood, Strawberry Fields, Hardwick Live, Kendal Calling and many many more in the UK and Europe.

Now, three years on from the phenomenal reunion album, the band are finally ready to release their new album in Autumn 2015. The boys believe it is their best ever record, but they’re not the only ones – Cenzo Townshend who has worked with anyone who is anyone nowadays (Florence, U2, Primal Scream etc) 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 in September 2015.

Billy Bibby

Made in Lancashire and raised in the Welsh seaside resort of Llandudno. Former Catfish & The Bottlemen guitarist Billy Bibby was one of the founding members of the band and cut his gigging teeth for 7 years up and down the UK, Europe and over in the States as the bands lead guitarist and backing vocalist. One of his greatest achievements to date is the gold disk that he earned for his part in the bands first album ‘The Balcony’. Something that Billy is very proud to have been part of.

Now taking on his own solo project and looking to forage his own way in the industry. Billy Bibby’s voice has all the traditions of a Lancashire hotpot churned together with the excitement of a trip to the beach. Possessing powerful melodic pipes and a set of songs to match. Bibby prides himself on making those records that everyday people will understand and resonate with. Influences from such greats as Elvis Presley, Noel Gallagher and Mark Knopfler most prominent but not defining on his singing and song writing style.

Having just recently sorted out his backing band. This will be one of Billy’s first shows with them accompanying him and fulfilling his songs full potential. Promotional songs such as ‘Waiting for you’ and ‘Believe me’ have already had radio play from Adam Walton on BBC Radio Wales and John Rose on UICRADIO in the States. He’s also been on Nicola Gilroy’s BBC Radio Lincolnshire show playing two live acoustic songs. (Don’t Fall and Waiting for you).

The catalogue of his material is ever growing and in due time there will be an EP and a single on the way. Just keep your eyes peeled for this young talent who given a chance will take a gig wherever possible and relish playing in  front of a live audience.

“2015 will go on record as the year Billy Bibby, former lead guitar of Catfish and the Bottlemen, began crafting his own solo material. It is often said that things happen for a reason. Here the reason is pure and simple: incredible talent that begs to be heard. It won’t be long before audiences are singing and dancing along to these songs”

(Julie Blore-Bizot – Writer/Contributor XSNoize.com and Indiemusic.fr)

 ”If you go to Billy’s Soundcloud…I’m sure you’ll be able to listen to Billy  to your heart’s content – which could be a very lot, judging on that!”

(Adam Walton – BBC Radio Wales)
