Here in the states, British rock band Dodgy were known mostly for two things: Standout 1996 jam “In A Room”, and said song appearing on pretty much every single fucking Now That’s What I Call Britpop compilation that came out in the late-’90s.
Now, the London band is back with a new track titled “You Give Drugs A Bad Name”, and it features this very pointed lyrical line: “Got a feeling, just a feeling, we’re not in Camden anymore”.
The new song, which you can hear below via the lyric video, is the first bit of music from Dodgy’s upcoming sixth studio album What Are We Fighting For, out September 2 in the UK via Cherry Red. The LP is the follow-up to 2012 album Stand Upright in a Cool Place, the band’s first record in 11 years, and the first official single from the album, “Are You The One”, will be out in July.
Dodgy will play a handful of UK dates in the coming weeks, including appearances at festivals Isle of Wight on June 11 and Kendal Calling on July 30. Let’s hope for a few US dates later in the year.
