The Dum Dums were a British guitar-pop band. They split up in August 2001. The band members were Josh Doyle - vocals and guitar, Steve Clarke - bass and vocals, Stuart 'Baxter' Wilkinson - drums and vocals.
Originally formed in 1997, the band spent their early years gigging in small venues and songwriting. They signed a management contract with Modernwood Management, and then signed to Wildstar Records in March 1999. In the same month they went on their first UK tour, supporting fellow Modernwood artist Nik Kershaw. A much more extensive tour in September, supporting My Life Story, followed. It was on this tour that the band began to build up their fanbase, selling a two-track CD known as The Blue CD that contained the tracks Everything and Until My Ship Comes In.
Dum Dums' debut single, Everything, produced by Steve Power was released on 28th February 2000. Accompanied by a memorable video and A-listing on British radio stations, including BBC Radio 1, it reached 21 in the UK charts.
The second single, Can't Get You Out Of My Thoughts was released on 26th June and reached number 18.
