    New Boots and Panties was one of my favourite albums of that era.

    He did.

    i believe it was released in the UK just after Christmas. that's certainly when I saw all the promo stuff for it.

    Only saw him once, 1978, don't think I really appreciated it at the time, I was too full of The Clash and The Stranglers.

    i used to go and see him at dingwalls in camden town in the late 70's, i think they were called kilburn and the high roads then.

    dr feelgood from canvey island were another great live act of the same era. lee brilleaux, feelgoods lead singer also died a few years back.

    I once had a Cortina, but never shagged a girl called Nina.

    Outstanding lyricist.

    I sat next to him at a garden table backstage at Madstock 1992, and I went to his tribute gig at the Brixton Academy in June 2000 what had his best songs performed by the likes of Nena Cherry, Madness, Robbie Williams, Kirsty McColl and that fat cnut from Never Mind the Buzzcocks.

    So there.

    New Boots & Panties is the only CD that is a permanent fixture in my car's changer.

    Dury was a phenomenal talent.
