#495: New Boots and Panties!! by Ian Dury [and the Blockheads]

New Boots and Panties!! by Ian Dury [and the Blockheads] (1977)

Favorite track(s): "Sweet Gene Vincent"

Thoughts: I liked it, but I didn't love it. I still don't warm easily to punk (and I'm not even sure this really counts as punk--there's saxophone!) and I liked the music less as I went farther on in the album. I'd never heard of Dury before this, so maybe it will just take some time. We'll see if he has other albums on the list.

Blackmail Man is great! Listen again! Not a massive fan of Ian Dury either to be honest. His band.. the Blockheads were supposed to be phenomenal live. Punk can definitely include sax by the way... X-Ray Spex for example were punk for sure. Check out their album 'Germ Free Adolescents'.
