Silence is Golden again

I actually only posted yesterday's song as a precursor to today's. I've been listening to a lot of Ian Dury and the Blockheads this week, particularly the album Do It Yourself. He's a wonderfully eccentric Rocker/Funker/Popster/Punker from the UK at the turn of the 70s and 80s. I was introduced to him early as my summer camp had a bunch of British Counselors who worked at the camp just so they could spend a few weeks in America before and after. This caused a good amount of cultural diffusion between us Yankees and those Lobster coats. I just got back into his crazy unique style because a Music BioPic is screening right now at the Tribeca Film Festival about Ian Dury's life and career. Named for his biggest hit, the movie is called Sex & Drugs & Rock & Roll, but I think I'd rather keep it Quiet again today.
