Arctic Monkeys old band The Dodgems kick off day two of V Festival

Nick O' Malley's old group start things at Chelmsford

The Dodgems kicked off day two of the V Festival in Chelmsford today (August 19).

The band, who included Arctic Monkeys bassist Nick O’Malley until he replaced Andy Nicholson following his departure from the band, were playing their second appearance at the V Festival following their debut last year.

Singer Phil Goodwin told the crowd: “Thanks for coming out to see us,” before playing opener ‘You’re Not What You Used To Be’.

Before playing ‘Fashion Queen’, Goodwin said: “This one is for all the fancy Wellingtons and shit.”

Keyboardist Tommy Goodwin then told the crowd: “Would anyone like a T-shirt?” before getting a bag out, chucking T-shirts out to members of the crowd before performing ‘Turn Out The Lights’.
