Ian Dury / Best Of

Rare is the recording artist and bassist whose every utterance is indispensable! To my ears, the entire canon of Ian Dury and The Blockheads is such.  Norman Watt-Roy is the bass maestro of the punk era; melding funk, jazz, blues, reggae, soul, pop, and every permutation thereof to Lord Upminster’s lunatic libretto.

Among Norman’s most brilliant passages include: "Wake Up and Make Love with Me," "Sex & Drugs & Rock & Roll," "Clevor Trever," "Inbetweenies," "Hit Me with Your Rhythm Stick," Reasons to Be Cheerful, Part 3."
