Never miss another 'The Blockheads' show
"Rarely off the road since the death of Ian Dury in 2000, there's no doubting that the most lovable, cocky, funny, schoolboy-rude, and artful characters from the punk generation are The Blockheads.
Dury's lyrics were a unique combination of poetry, word play, earthy humour, and deadly-accurate observations of everyday, British working-class life and Derek Hussey's ruminations in the band's new songs keep those themes with an added bite for the 21st century. Hussey is known to the bands followers as Dury's best friend and minder."
Info provided by the Event Organiser
Formed in 1977 to promote Ian Dury's album New Boots and Panties on the first Stiff Records tour of the UK. The Blockheads are fronted by Derek 'The Draw' Hussey, who was Ian's best friend and is now the band's vocalist and wordsmith. Chaz Jankel, Norman Watt-Roy, John Turnbull and Mick Gallagher still remain from the original band and the current line-up is augmented by John Roberts on drums and a rolling line up of saxophonists including Gilad Atzmon, Terry Edwards or Dave Lewis. These legendary Brit-Funkers will be playing all the old favourites and new material.
