Artful Dodger

About Artful Dodger

An unsung power pop band of the '70s, Artful Dodger existed in the mid-'70s gap that separated the Raspberries from Cheap Trick. Sonically, Artful Dodger skewed toward the huge arena hooks of the Raspberries but they lacked the Paul McCartney infatuation of Eric Carmen, favoring a big roar that tamed the arena rock of the Who. Being stuck between the early days of power pop and its impish revival during New Wave meant that Artful Dodger were by definition a cult band, but the music they made was tuneful and hard, the kind of thing that was prized by power pop aficionados. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine
