Block booking.

IMMORTALISED in the recent acclaimed film Sex & Drugs & Rock & Roll, THE BLOCKHEADS are on Teesside next week.

Together with Ian Dury, The Blockheads created songs that were clever, insightful, subversive and, more often than not, just plain fun.

Hit Me With Your Rhythm Stick, Reasons To Be Cheerful Part 3, What A Waste and, the anthem for their generation, Sex And Drugs And Rock And Roll all carried the same trademark mix of humour, indignation, witty wordplay and extreme musicianship.

Playing at the ARC in Stockton on Thursday, The Blockheads (pictured above) remain one of the hardest working groups to have emerged from the 1970s and are still going strong with a fantastically well received new album Staring Down The Barrel proving there is life after Ian Dury.
