January's all a bit bleak, isn't it? Weather's rubbish, payday takes ages to come around, and all those new year resolutions have fallen on their backside with a week.
But chin up - good news follows bad, and The Blockheads will be returning to MK11 on January 19.
The band behind Ian Dury's poetic lyrics brought you insanely good tracks like Hit Me with your Rhythm Stick, What A Waste, Reasons to be Cheerful (Part 3), and Sex & Drugs & Rock & Roll among many others.
Rarely off the road since the loss of Ian Dury in 2000, but now with Derek Hussey fronting the band, the troupe are one of the most underrated British bands of all time, with a legion of fans of all ages. And in the live, they'll knock your socks off!
Together with their own new material, interest in Sex & Drugs & Rock & Roll, the biopic of their erstwhile front man, the performance of Spastics Autisticus at the 2012 Para-Olympic Opening Ceremony, and the musical Reasons To be Cheerful, has seen a resurgence in their popularity.
Expect to hear all the tracks you know and love, together with a smattering of new stuff, because these boys ain't done yet. Thankfully.
