Today I am a happy bunny. One of my favourite bands is coming to my home town and I have obtained my ticket.
I have always been a fan of the Blockheads both with and after Ian Dury. New Boots and Panties was and still is a favourite album that gets played in my house and car all the time. Ian was a great lyricist and I wish I was as good. I have even been known to ‘adapt’ a couple of blockheads backing tracks in my earlier, more humorous, period. (Sorry lads. Hope you don’t mind!)
It has been pointed out to me that on some of my stuff I sound a bit like Ian, but I can’t see it myself. Anyway, here’s a track of the new album that I hope he would have liked
