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, this time without Chaz Jankel but with saxophonist Davey Payne. They toured the U.S.A supporting Lou Reed across North America ending with their own dates in California. This recording was made at The Old Waldorf in San Francisco on the second night of their US tour and features all the classic tracks from Durys’ album ‘New Boots and Panties’.
