Brit pop 9os group Dodgy have revealed how they feel “privileged” to perform at the Nantwich Music and Words Festival.
The Midlands trio shot to fame with their smash hit “Good Enough” in 1996, and climbed to number 4 in the UK charts.
Now frontman Nigel Clark spoke to StaffsLive about why they reformed and how it feels to be headlining the opening night of Cheshire’s Music and Words festival.
He said: “It feels so good to be touring again.
“I’ve always loved the atmosphere at festivals, and at our age we feel privileged to perform at the Music and Words Festival – even though its been running since 2008, we’ve never had the chance to perform there so we are really excited.”
Nigel is not revealing yet what songs the trio will be performing on Monday evening.
He said: “We want to showcase some of our new music – but it would be rude to perform our most famous song “Good Enough”.
“Over a decade later and people still know us for that hit, so it will definitely make an appearance on Monday’s set!”
Nigel said their split back in 1998 was not acrimonious but felt it was time to move on.
He said: “We split up because I felt like I ran out of things to say.
“It wasn’t personal in anyway, I really like them guys, and I feel happy we are back together.”
“When I took time out by myself to perform solo, I felt lonely.
“It was just me and my guitar on stage, and i felt something was missing.
“We ironed out the disagreements we used to have and thought to ourselves, why did we ever argue in the first place?”
Dodgy will be supported by singer songwriter Hannah Brown at Monday’s concert in the Crown Ballroom in Nantwich.
Nigel admitted: “We only found out about Hannah supporting us the other day, so I have not yet checked her music out, but I will give her a listen.”
