Proper Cockney

A classic album by a great artist. One of the few English artists who didn't look across the pond for their inspiration. He wrote about England and the English with humour and honesty. If in doubt, sample tracks 1,6,11 and go from there...

Great album

Ian Dury never quite fit into anyone's classification system. Too sophisticated to be a punk and too rough edged to be new wave. A shame he didn't leave us more.

A classic. New Boots has aged well, and is likely more engaging to modern ears than it was back in the late 70s. Certainly that is my experience. Well deserving of a download. Whole album, of course; is there any other way?

They Say All Music Guide

Ian Dury’s primary appeal lies in his lyrics, which are remarkably clever sketches of British life delivered with a wry wit. Since Dury’s accent is thick and his language dense with local slang, much of these pleasures aren’t discernible to casual listeners, leaving the music to stand on its own merits. On his debut album, New Boots and Panties!!, Dury’s music is at its best, and even that is a bizarrely uneven fusion of pub rock, punk rock, and disco. Still, Dury’s off-kilter charm and irrepressible energy make the album gel, with the disco pulse of “Wake Up and Make Love With Me” making perfect sense next to the gentle tribute “Sweet Gene Vincent,” the roaring punk of “Blockheads,” and the revamped music hall of “Billericay Dickie” and “My Old Man.” [Repertoire's 1996 CD reissue adds five essential singles -- "Sex & Drugs & Rock & Roll," "Razzle in My Pocket," "You're More Than Fair," "England's Glory," "What a Waste" -- that nearly make the disc a Dury best-of.] – Stephen Thomas Erlewine
