Ian Dury

Ian Dury (and the Blockheads) are one of those group I always wished I'd seen....but now never will. Still greatly enjoy his music.

He has a son, I know, who shouldn't hide in the shadows...the Blockheads aint buried either. Just forgotten by a load of Londoners and folk who might flag whilst remembering the Pride Of England's Glory.

Ah, bless him. I'm sure he would have included Tony Bliair, One-Eyed Gordon and all the toffs ( they made ) in-out special branch, Leveson inquiries ooh feck it England's Glory, to name just but a few........name just but a few..... but it wouldn't be Glory then, if one named some recent few.

Forgotten? Not by me. Saw him live in 77.
Me to Manchester.

I know someone I trust who knew him after the blockheads Who maintains he was a manipulative twat. great songs though.

His biography was enlightening reading. Yes he was manipulative but also very focussed on his writing - he'd take months to perfect the words to some of his songs. I'm sure that the nay-sayers will dispute that but some of the lyrics are quite clever - Trevor!

Must of been one of the Blockheads first gigs? Before that it was Kilburn and the High Roads playing Dingwalls, the Hawley, Kilburn Empire and like that. If you can remember that lot, you weren't there as they say. His finest moment in my view, with the barking mad Wilko Johnson out of Dr. Feelgood... (Ians nose is a bit red on account of he has got a cold)

I saw Ian Dury and the Blockeheads about 20 years ago at Madstock in Finsbury Park. Brilliant. My brother saw the Blockheads last year supporting Madness, he said they were still good. I did hear that Phil Jupitus sometimes fronts them.

Saw them at that as well. It was a beautiful thing!
Phil Jupitus does sometimes front them and you have Mr Norman Watt Roy on bass, when hes not out touring with Wilko Johnson.

Dury's son Baxter is on tour just now and played Glasgow last week, and very good it is to. Doing his own material but is a chip of the old block, but dealt with the blockheads song requests well by saying naw!

He's a fuckin' poet!

"Skinny white sailor, the chances were slender, the beauties were brief
Shall I mourn your decline with some Thunderbird wine and a black handkerchief?"

My Old Man is one of my all time favorite songs.

Saw the DVD about him just a few weeks ago from lovefilm doty com - Sex and Drugs and Rock and Roll. Wasn't bad, quite interesting really.
