Dodgy are back, really they are, ask Mathew priest their drummer!

Dodgy are back! At least that was the hope around October time last year when news of the comeback spread joy across the land. However, November spawned a monster of a blow to all who eagerly awaited their return. It was a blow that guitarist Andy Miller felt more than most when he fell out of bed and chipped a bone in his forearm, delaying the much anticipated Dodgy march just a little more!

Drummer Mathew Priest (MP) who I spoke to last year (link) took some more time out to answer a few random and perhaps less relevant questions for you lucky Dodgy fans.
