Starting out as the band behind Ian Dury, the Blockheads, are the most lovable, funny and artful characters from the punk generation.

Backing up Ian Dury's poetic lyrics, this is the band that brought you Hit Me with your Rhythm Stick, What A Waste, Reasons to be Cheerful (Part 3), Sex & Drugs & Rock and Clever Trevor many more from the illustrious back catalogue.

The Blockheads are fronted by Derek Hussey; Chaz Jankel, Norman Watt-Roy, John Turnbull and Mick Gallagher, all remain from the original band, John Roberts on drums and a rolling line up of saxophonists.

After over thirty years, The Blockheads are still building their wall of sound, and it just gets bigger and better.
