  1. One of the lyrical masters…a poet.

    A wonderful live performer with one of the greatest live bands ever “The Blockheads”.

    He famously “died” twice! - In 1998, his death was announced on XFM radio by Bob Geldof, probably a hoax from a listener!? He sadly passed too soon aged 57 in March 2000.

    There are so many wonderful quotes attributed to Ian, many from his wonderful songs. Here are just two:

    “I'm not here to be remembered, I'm here to be alive.”
    Ian Dury

    “Here for a moment is a glimpse of my plan:
    All kids will be happy learning things.
    The wind will smell of wild flowers.
    Nobody will whack each other about with nasty things.
    All the room in the world.”
    Ian Dury

    One of his sons Baxter Dury is the boy on the front cover of “New Boots and Panties” LP.
    Baxter is a wonderful musician and has released several great albums…worth checking him out.

    Stay Safe
    Cheers
