Ian Dury & The Blockheads – The Artist

Ian Robins Dury (1942 – 2000) was an English singer-songwriter and actor who rose to fame during the late 1970s, during the punk and new wave era of rock music. He was the lead singer of Ian Dury and the Blockheads and before that of Kilburn and the High Roads. Dury’s lyrics are a combination of lyrical poetry, word play, observation of British everyday life, character sketches, and sexual humour.

Hit Me With Your Rhythm Stick – The Song

‘Hit Me With Your Rhythm Stick’ is a song by Ian Dury and the Blockheads, first released as a single on Stiff Records in the UK on 23 November 1978. Written by Dury and the Blockheads’ multi-instrumentalist Chaz Jankel, it is the group’s most successful single, reaching number one on the UK Singles Chart in January 1979 as well as reaching the top three in Ireland, Australia and New Zealand, and it was also a top 20 hit in several European countries. The song has been used for numerous purposes since its release including various adverts and in numerous television programmes. It is one of his most popular songs though in keeping with his then-policy of not including singles on his albums the song was omitted from Do it Yourself, the next Ian Dury & The Blockheads album. Paul Hardcastle remixed the track in 1985, stripping all the instrumental tracks and using only Dury’s vocal, and re-recording the instrumental parts with keyboards.
