The Blockheads on Thursday 18th November 2021
Please note, this event has been cancelled.
Formed in 1977 to promote Ian Durys’ album ‘New Boots and Panties’ on the first Stiff Records tour of the U.K. - Chaz Jankel, Norman Watt-Roy, Charlie Charles, John Turnbull and Mick Gallagher - became known as The Blockheads.
As Ian Dury & The Blockheads they went back out on tour, and in 1978 released ‘What a Waste’ a single that reached #5 in the U.K. charts. They were then joined by saxophonist Davey Payne and toured the U.S.A supporting Lou Reed across the U.S.A.
In 1979 ‘Hit me with your Rhythm Stick’ (#1 in the UK charts) and ‘Reasons to be Cheerful, Part 3’ (#3 in the UK charts) were released along with the classic 'Do It Yourself' LP.
In 1982 Ian Dury & The Blockheads disbanded until the early 1990's when they reformed to perform at the 'Madstock' festival in Finsbury Park headlined by Madness.
