Sex & Drugs & Rock & Roll

I am a bit poorly at the moment, with a bad cold, but the moment I am better, I plan to find a cinema showing this film.

I mean, Andy Serkis playing Ian Dury, what could be better? (And apparently Serkis does his own vocals, and doesn’t sound at all bad).

    I remember Ian Dury from the 70s, although looking him up there were quite a few things I didn’t know about him. Gah, now I have “Hit Me With Your Rhythm Stick” as an earworm…

    Something quite interesting I read this morning. As I said earlier, Andy Serkis does his own vocals in the movie, but to achieve this, he actually went into a studio with the original Blockheads (Ian Dury’s band for much of his career). Which is why, to my ears, it sounds so authentic.
