‘Ian Dury owed his brilliance to no one. But he owed his stardom to The Blockheads’ ~ The Word
‘Given the times, those ancient Blockheads sound more here-and-now than anyone’ ~ Uncut
Starting out as the band behind Ian Dury, the Blockheads are a legendary outfit that has grown in stature from the late 70s right up to the present day.
Rarely off the road since the demise of Dury in 2000, but now with Derek Hussey fronting the band, the Blockheads are still one of the most underrated British bands of all time, with a legion of fans of all ages.
Along with some new material you can expect to hear all the classics including Hit Me With Your Rhythm Stick, Wake Up And Make Love With Me, Reasons To Be Cheerful (Part 3), and many more from the illustrious back catalogue.
The Blockheads are fronted by Derek ‘The Draw’ Hussey, and Chaz Jankel, Norman Watt-Roy, John Turnbull, and Mick Gallagher still remain from the original band. The current line-up is augmented by John Roberts on drums and a rolling line up of saxophonists that includes Gilad Atzmon, Terry Edwards, and Dave Lewis.
