In the wake of our very successful issues of Ian Dury’s albums last year, we now present his final album.
“Mr. Love Pants”, issued in 1998, saw him properly re-united at last with The Blockheads, their name appearing on the front cover for the first time since 1980’s “Laughter”. Chaz Jankel, Mickey Gallagher, Davey Payne, Johnny Turnbull and Norman Watt-Roy are all present and in their legendary cracking form.
Seven of the songs were written with Chaz Jankel and the album was engineered and co-produced by “New Boots And Panties” soundman Laurie Latham.
On its original release the album charted for several weeks. Ian Dury died some 18 months later.
