We take audience safety very seriously at The Hunter Club, and strongly believe that gigs can and should be safe spaces, free from harassment, intimidation, prejudice, bullying and violence. We expect that all artists, crew, venue staff and attendees will respect our values, and we have a zero tolerance policy towards those who do not. Anyone who endangers the enjoyment and safety of others at a Washing Machine night will be ejected and barred. It is unfortunate that in 2020 we still have to say this stuff, but we hope that by doing so we can help to create an atmosphere where everyone feels safe and able to enjoy themselves.

Ian Drury & The Blockheads

Ian Drury & The Blockheads

What A Waste – Ian Dury & The Blockheads Tribute (Hunter Club, Bury St Edmunds)
Recreated in Sound & Vision

Ian Dury formed Kilburn and the High Roads (a reference to the road in North West London) in 1971, Dury was vocalist and lyricist, co-writing with pianist Russell Hardy and later enrolling into the group a number of the students he was teaching at Canterbury College of Art.

The Kilburn’s found favour on London’s pub rock circuit and signed to Dawn Records in 1974 but, despite favorable press coverage and a tour opening for English rock band The Who, the group failed to rise above cult status and disbanded in 1975.

Live at The Roundhouse, Chalk Farm, London, 1978 under the management of Andrew King and Peter Jenner, the original managers of Pink Floyd, Ian Dury and the Blockheads quickly gained a reputation as one of the top live acts of new wave music.

Dury’s lyrics are a combination of lyrical poetry, word play, observation of British everyday life, character sketches, and sexual humour: “This is what we find … Home improvement expert Harold Hill of Harold Hill, Of do-it-yourself dexterity and double-glazing skill, Came home to find another gentleman’s kippers in the grill, so he sanded off his winkle with his Black & Decker drill.” The song “Billericay Dickie” rhymes “I had a love affair with Nina, In the back of my Cortina” with “A seasoned-up hyena could not have been more obscener”.

In 1974, Radio Caroline’s Ronan O’Rahilly set up the pop group The Loving Awareness Band, comprising John Turnbull (guitar) and Mick Gallagher (keyboards). In 1976, The Loving Awareness Band released their only album, Loving Awareness. The Loving Awareness Band broke up in 1977 and Norma Watt-Roy and Chas Charles joined a new band being formed by Ian Dury, who had begun writing songs with pianist and guitarist Chaz Jankel (the brother of noted music video, TV, commercial and film director Annabel Jankel). With Jankel fashioning Dury’s lyrics into number of songs, the two began recording with Charles, Watt-Roy, Gallagher, Turnbull and former Kilburn and the High Roads saxophonist Davey Payne. An album was recorded, but was of no interest to major record labels. Next door to Dury’s manager’s office, however, was the newly formed Stiff Records, a perfect home for Dury’s maverick style.
The band was invited by Stiff to join the “Live Stiffs Tour”, and the band Ian Dury and the Blockheads was born, with the name ostensibly taken from the song of the same name which portrayed a drunken Essex Untermensch stereotype:

This show nails the spirit and essence of IAN DURY & THE BLOCKHEADS in total detail. All the hits are there :- * What a Waste * Reasons To Be Cheerful Part 3 * Wake Up And Make Love With Me * There Ain’t Half Been Some Clever Bastards * Hit Me With Your Rhythm Stick * Razzle In My Pocket * Sex & Drugs & Rock & Roll * Inbetweeenies * Common As Muck * Sweet Gene Vincent * I Want To Be Straight * You’ll See Glimpses* and many many more.
