A POP band whose hits became Britpop soundtracks to the summer are coming to Otley.

Dodgy, who had a dozen Top 40 singles during their commercial peak in the 1990s, will play an acoustic set at the Courthouse on Saturday, October 14.

Their hit songs include Staying Out for The Summer, If You're Thinking of Me and Good Enough - officially one of the most played tracks on British radio of the last 20 years.

The group has released six albums and toured across the world and the UK since forming 27 years ago, and over that period also fitted in a ten year break.

This October and November the band, comprising Nigel Clark, Andy Miller and Stu Thoy, is playing a series of intimate, stripped-back shows as Dodgy Acoustic.

Their Otley performance promises to include their classic tunes, fan favourites and some unearthed 'forgotten gems' along with some stories about life on the road.

Songs from their recent, critically acclaimed album Stand Upright in A Cool Place and the equally well received, latest offering - What Are We Fighting For - will also be showcased.

Dodgy frontman Nigel Clark said: "We 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!"

Support on the night will come from One Sided Horse which started life in 2013 when Mark Whiteside, the singer/drummer with Evil Blizzard, decided to try taking centre stage rather than singing from the back.

A chance meeting at a gig with Embrace bass player Steve Firth opened up his songs to more people, and after meeting the rest of the band it was decided to record a full album of songs.

Tickets for the Courthouse show, which starts at 8pm, cost £14 and can be booked by visiting otleycourthouse.org.uk, calling (01943) 467466 or popping into the venue, on Courthouse Street, Otley.
