    Question Ian Dury & Southend United

    Just watched a concert on the Sky Planner recorded from earlier in the week re Ian Drury at Hammersmith in 1985. In it he mentions his friend Bobby Moore ('he didn't knick the bracelet' according to Ian) and he then goes on to mention to my surprise Southend United, wishing us all the best...

    Ian Dury SUFC mention

    Just watching my Ian Dury live DVD from 1985, filmed at the Hammersmith Odeon. Nice bit of nostalgia.

  8. 1001 Albums You Must Hear Before You Die

    Just heard about this book that was published late last year - some strange choices and (IMHO) some glaring ommisions. That said, I own 293 of these and have heard a further 108 giving me a respectable total of 401. To be honest, dying would be a favourable option to hearing most of the others...
