Can you imagine a disabled pub rocker being a pop star and having number one hits now?

This is great, thanks! I still have the the 12-inch vinyl dance version which we used as a speaker demo in the audio retail business in the late 70’s, absolutely lethal bass track on that one. I personally destroyed a pair of ADS 810’s using it, great fun.
I was at that gig.They were a very tight outfit.One of the best bands of the New Wave era….No,Ian Dury was the best,New Boots And Panties still shines,fuck it shines.They had the balls to perform live in Belfast during dark,dark times.This Belfast gig was transmitted to a National audience,it helped portray ignored emotions of a lost generation,cheers Blockheads.
The English Funkadelic!
I first saw Ian & The Blockheads at Hammersmith Odeon in ’79 – and I saw The Blockheads twice last year…those guys still rock!
