There’s no doubting that the most lovable, eccentric, cocky, funny, schoolboy-rude and artful characters from the punk generation are The Blockheads. Together with Ian Dury they created songs that were clever, insightful, subversive and, more often than not, just plain fun.
Clever Trevor (sic), Hit Me With Your Rhythm Stick, Reasons To Be Cheerful Part 3, What A Waste and, the anthem for their generation, Sex and Drugs and Rock and Roll, all carried the same trademark mark mix of humour, indignation, wonderfully witty wordplay and extreme musicianship.
Dury may no longer be with us but The Blockheads live on….celebrating their 35th Anniversary next year.
"Dury would be proud." Mojo
