THE BLOCKHEADS
'Reasons To Be Cheerful (Part 3)' 45th Anniversary Tour

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 Micky Gallagher- became known as The Blockheads.

As Ian Dury & The Blockheads they went back out on tour, and in 1978 released the What a Waste single which reached #5 in the U.K. charts. They were then joined by saxophonist Davey Payne and toured the U.S.A supporting Lou Reed.

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.

Ian Dury & The Blockheads disbanded in 1982 only to reform in the early 1990's to perform at the 'Madstock' Festival in London's Finsbury Park headlined by Madness.
