On Tuesday The Blockheads Call On Fans To Land Them On The Charts was a top story. Here is the recap: (Classic Rock) The late Ian Dury's old band The Blockheads have asked fans to help them enter the charts later this month in an attempt to have material from their latest album played on radio. But they're not aiming for the No.1 spot – and they'll settle for any position in the Top 40.
The band, fronted by Dury's minder Derek 'The Draw' Hussey since the original frontman's death in 2000, are disappointed that no singles from 2013 release Same Horse Different Jockey gained much airplay. So they've hatched a plan to make sure the next track, Boys Will Be Boys, can't be ignored by radio bosses.
The Blockheads explain on their Facebook campaign page: "We all feel this album is our best to date, and we'd have have expected the singles to perform better.
"It was brought to our attention that all the main radio stations are obliged to play any single that appears in the Top 40 – and it only takes 2,500 sales in one week to get there." - More including a video
