I hadn't heard they made a movie out of the life of Ian Dury but when I saw it at the library I had to take it home. I put it on and a lot of chaos came out of that disc. Andy Serkis plays Ian Dury and the 2010 movie is directed by Mat Whitecross. I hadn't heard of that guy but he did an ok job with a tough movie. It moves across time and space mixing Ian's life as a child with his life as an adult. If you told me you hadn't heard of Ian Dury I wouldn't be surprised. You might have heard of the song but never heard of the man who wrote and preformed it. Sex & Drugs & Rock & Roll came out in England the summer of 1977 and made it to the US some short time later. It was only available as a single for a while. I don't remember having one but I think another guy did. We used to buy 45 RPM singles in those days. At one point I had hundreds of them. What a pain in the ass it was to play a song at a time. I certainly had a copy of the song on Ian Dury's 1st album New Boots and Panties. It became a favorite of several of the locals and got played it a lot. It's more New Wave than punk but that still doesn't pin down all the influences in the music. It well worth a listen. About the movie I can say it was entertaining but kind of sad. Ian was one of those driven guys who got married, had kids, then screwed up his marriage. He had polio and that lead to some sad shit in his life. He died in 2000 of cancer. He continued working until his death. I thought the movie was well worth seeing but not one I would want to watch all that often. I think I'll go watch another episode of QI before Friday Night Movie night. Get my learn on.
