In 1978, the New Musical Express ran a competition to find the Champion Blockhead. Contestants submitted a photograph of themselves and the winner was chosen by Ian Dury. The top prize was a rare limited edition Ian Dury EP, an autographed copy of Ian's album "New Boots And Panties" (a classic you should track down if you do not already have a copy), a pair of new boots and panties, plus a night out with Ian Dury And The Blockheads.

The outright winner was Slim (then known as Clive Pain from Alton, Hants).

The rest is history.
