Formed in 1977 to promote Ian Durys’ album New Boots and Panties on the first Stiff Records tour of the U.K. – Chaz Jankel, Norman Watt-Roy, Charlie Charles, John Turnbull, and Mick Gallagher – became known as The Blockheads.

As Ian Dury & The Blockheads they went back out on tour, and in 1978 released What a Waste, a single that reached #5 in the U.K. charts. They were then joined by saxophonist Davey Payne and toured the U.S.A supporting Lou Reed.

In 1979, the classic single Hit Me With Your Rhythm Stick reached #1 in the UK charts and the follow up Reasons To Be Cheerful Part 3 hit #3 in the UK charts. This was swiftly followed by arguably the band’s masterpiece, the Do It Yourself LP.

Ian Dury & The Blockheads disbanded in 1982 and did not play again until the early 1990’s when they reformed to perform at the ‘Madstock’ festival in Finsbury Park headlined by Madness.
