    I'm not getting paid so this isnt a real advert :)

    Congratulations Howard! I am a big Ian Dury & The Blockheads fan - I'm very jealous!

    cheers David... have you seen them on this tour?

    we played at a festival they headlined earlier this year... my word do they rock! a very very powerful band - awe inspiring stage presence!

    and mr Watt-Roy, hell is he good! He plays simple stuff really, but you can tell he's been playing it a very long time. SO solid.

    Hi Howard. How was the gig?

    Have to admit that I haven't seen the Blockheads since Ian died - I have a video tape somewhere of an Ian Dury & Blockheads gig at Ronnie's not long before Ian died. Great band live!

    Strange to think that they were part of the punk movement when they're all really a bunch of jazz musicians!

    I've seen a DVD just out of a Blockheads gig at the Hammersmith Odeon in 1979 - I think I'm going to have to pick that up!
