Ian Dury and Chas Jankel: Teeth and Smiles

Mike Stand, Face, The, September 1981

IAN DURY is in prime form. He is just back from a short holiday in Greece and is, if not exactly bronzed, then distinctly off-white, the extra colour nicely highlighting his grizzled curls and sideburns. What's more he's just taken delivery of a new set of drumsticks and found to his surprise that they are monographed, like a gent's silk shirt.
