The Blockheads headline The Stables in Wavendon next week.

Rarely off the road since 2002, The Blockheads continue their legacy playing hundreds of dates around the UK.

Originally formed in 1977 to promote Ian Dury’s album, New Boots and Panties, the band is now fronted by Derek Hussey.

The legendary funksters will be playing a mix of newer tracks alongside old favourites such as What A Waste, Sex & Drugs & Rock and Roll, Reasons To Be Cheerful and the hit single Hit Me With Your Rhythm Stick.

The success of the 2010 film, Sex and Drugs and Rock & Roll, documenting Dury’s life, helped introduce a new generation to the band.

The Blockheads play on Wednesday, January 15.

Tickets costs £20 and doors open at 8pm.
