There has recently been a revival of certain genres of music in Dublin, with bands like yourselves, Gangs and others spearheading the movement. Why do you think this music is becoming popular again?
We can’t speak for other bands but certainly The Dodgy Few are sick of this X-Factor generation in which wealthy individuals such as Cowell have the power to elevate mainly talentless twats into instant fame and fortune.
What state do you think Dublin’s music scene is in at the moment?
Dublin’s music scene is thriving and this always seems to happen on the back of a recession, what else is there to do? There are currently many young bands in Dublin, such as ourselves, covering many different genres and it is indeed exciting times to see original material being played by young bands at live venues.
I know you are close to Dublin ska fixtures The Bionic Rats, what have you learned from them?
The Bionic Rats have given nothing but helpful advice and encouragement to The Dodgy Few and it has definitely had a positive outcome on our present success.
They too started out as young ska and reggae musicians in Dublin and their advice, contacts and continued support is gratefully appreciated by all of us involved with The Dodgy Few. We’d like to wish them well in 2015.
