The dandy from London is back with his 20 years of creations
WhenSun. 8 Oct, 2023
"Dury understands the power of ‘write what you know’, in that it allows you to navigate your art with an aura of authenticity."
Spinning wry, observant stories of life among the well-heeled but poorly behaved, Baxter Dury, the son of pub rock/new wave icon Ian Dury, is a songwriter and vocalist with a strong and distinctive style.
After a tempestuous early life, he began his musical career by performing at a memorial service for his dad, then produced a series of albums beginning with 2002's Len Parrot’s Memorial Lift that balanced his deadpan vocals and debauched storytelling with subtle chamber pop arrangements and a nervy modern new wave approach.
By the time of 2017's Prince of Tears, some disco began to slip into his sound as he cemented his place as one of the wittiest, most biting songwriters of his era.
On his “Mr Maserati” album, he puts together his best classics and adds the single “D.O.A” to it, that he produced while being confined with his son.
The dandy from London finally comes back to the Botanique to show his Belgian fans what 20 years of creations sounds like.
