"and I'm Ian"
the last pretty-decent thing they did?
well, the lyrics are good on this
otherwise the album is a desert
and then Dury solo... i can't even remember if I checked it out once or not, but if I did left little impression, except for this
such a tragedy that he and Chas couldn't keep it together
that was supposed to the Important track on his solo debut album, the one with the message - a self-conscious epic at just shy of 15 minutes long - and as i recall rather different on the original LP than this contemporized edit... As music quite urgent and driving, but you can only imagine how it might have sounded with a commanding Dury vocal rather than Jankel's subdued and mousy effort
when it all went on the turn... turning back into pub rock (Wilko was never right for the Blockheads)
