Great to see that Ian D is not forgotten! First time I heard Ian was when my English teacher talked about cockney and played two songs from the New Boots and Panties album (Clevor Trever and My Old Man) in class. The album was pretty new then. I thought it was great and later I picked up the Do It Yourself LP and also the singles Hit Me With Your Rhythm Stick and Reasons To Be Cheerful. Who could imagine that an English class could be that inspiring!
