Ian Dury and The Blockheads - new radio documentary

Reasons to Be Cheerful - Ian Dury and The Blockheads

Next on: Saturday, 22:00 on BBC Radio 2

Synopsis

Andy Serkis tells the extraordinary story of Ian Dury and the Blockheads - how a disabled art teacher in his mid-thirties fused punk, funk and incredible lyrics to create some of the most important music of the 70s. Friends and colleagues including Chas Jankell, The Blockheads, Suggs, Phill Jupitus and Ian's son Baxter reflect on a career of "sex, drugs and rock and roll", from the revolutionary "New Boots and Panties" through to Ian's early death and the legacy of the Blockheads as the band continue to tour.

Broadcast

Sat 27 Mar 2010 22:00 BBC Radio 2

Chaz Jankel and John Turnbull from The Blockheads chat to Lauren Laverne about Reasons To Be Cheerful, a play inspired by the life and music of Ian Dury.

Part gig, part play, Reasons To Be Cheerful is a coming of age story written by Ian Sirett.

The Exploited have dropped out of Skeggy again (due to Wattie's continuing health problems I think) and The Blockheads have been booked to replace them.

I'm quite glad really.
