"Hit Me With Your Rhythm Stick" while unnervingly gay and bizaare sounds beautiful. I like Dury's voice, especially when he speaks French or verbally plays with British accents (maybe that's just his regular voice), but I listened to "Sex and Drugs and Rock and Roll" and "Roll Over and Make Love With Me" and I was not impressed.
Does this b ...[text shortened]... ry have? That's not Cockney, but I don't know the names of any other English accents.

Does this band have any other good songs?
What kind of an accent does Dury have? That's not Cockney, but I don't know the names of any other English accents.

You're better off with Devo.
Ian Dury came from Harrow, went to school in High Wycombe -- isn't that where Sicilian Smaug comes from? -- so I guess it's a Buckinghamshire accent.
He doesn't qualify as cockney.

I particularly like the way he says "gardens" and "slowly", dragging out the vowels.
Originally posted by Bosse de NageThe "Ron Hockley" one sounds just right. So it's a "Bucks" accent then.

But that might be a thing of the past. Hope it works.
