“Hit Me With Your Rhythm Stick”Ian Dury & The Blockheads

Ian Dury Hit Me With Your Rhythm Stick single Jim was reminded of Ian Dury & The Blockheads for the first time in years by watching the television adaptation of Tana French's Dublin Murders stories. Dury's 1978 song, "Hit Me With Your Rhythm Stick" was used, sending our fearless host down a rabbit hole recalling Dury's other two hits "Sex & Drugs & Rock & Roll" and "Reasons To Be Cheerful, Part 3." Jim makes the case that Dury was more than a novelty act, merging dance music with punk through his irrepressible attitude.

briston This week, Knoxville singer, songwriter and guitarist Briston Maroney shares what song got him Hooked On Sonics. For him, it was the Beatles' song "Dear Prudence" off of the White Album. He stumbled upon it when he was 11 years old and fell in love with it (and music).
