Details

Formed in 1977 to promote Ian Dury’s album New Boots and Panties on the first Stiff Records tour of the UK, The Blockheads are fronted by Derek ‘The Draw’ Hussey, who was Ian’s best friend and is now the band’s vocalist and wordsmith. Chaz Jankel, Norman Watt-Roy, John Turnbull and Mick Gallagher still remain from the original band and the current line-up is augmented by John Roberts on drums and a rolling line up of saxophonists including Gilad Atzmon, Terry Edwards or Dave Lewis. These legendary Brit-Funkers will be playing all the old favourites and new material.

Former Stiff records legend, Jona Lewie is synonymous with Christmas, via his massive seasonal hit ‘Stop The Cavalry’ (for which he won the coveted Ivor Novello award) Another of his most memorable songs is ‘You’ll Always Find Him In The Kitchen At Parties’, recently used for a TV ad campaign for IKEA UK, though originally a hit in 1980.
