Do you know I had completely forgotten about the existence of NEW BOOTS & PANTIES, one of the absolute seminal albums of the late Seventies. I probably have it on cassette somewhere, but if not I now feel compelled to go out and buy it again.

I was unaware of the new version (new beng a relative term in response to a post that is five years old). Anyway if Cery's Matthews used the original Blockheads, I assume that includes the guy (Norman Watt something or other) who plays Bass for Wilko Johnson ?


I had to look it up on the sleeve to be sure, but yes - Norman Watt-Roy played bass on most of the tracks on Brand New Boots & Panties, and is still a Blockhead to this day (when he's not touring with Wilko). His teeth are a bloody mess, though.
