Starting out as the band behind Ian Dury, the Blockheads are a legendary outfit that has grown in stature from the early days of the Stiff tour in 1977, right up to the present day.
With Dury the band brought you such classics as Hit Me with your Rhythm Stick, What A Waste, Reasons to be Cheerful (Part 3), and Sex & Drugs & Rock & Roll.
The last performance by Ian Dury & The Blockheads was on February 6th 2000 at The London Palladium. Ian died at 9am on 27th March 2000.
Rarely off the road since, but now with Derek Hussey fronting the band, the Blockheads remain one of the most underrated British bands of all time.
