Wary of the fate that befalls pop offspring who impersonate their parents (hello, Julian Lennon), Baxter Dury has journeyed as far beyond his dad Ian's music as possible. This beguiling debut sounds like hallucinatory space music from an intergalactic hippie paradise island. The instrumentation (played by musicians from Portishead and Pulp) includes a fairground organ and a zither; Dury's whispered vocal is reminiscent of a small boy asking for a cup of sugar across the garden fence.

Len Parrot's Memorial Lift is a meaningful piece of work from Dury J. an experimental effort full of professionalism and an original artistic sense. Baxter Dury attempts to be an individualist and he does a good job, but he is Ian's son through and through in a way that music brings alive. Just one listen to "Boneyard Dogs" and you'll know it. Track Listing.

Baxter Dury (born 18 December 1971) is an English indie musician, originally signed to Rough Trade Records. Baxter Dury is the son of Ian Dury and his wife Elizabeth "Betty" Rathmell. As a young boy he appeared on the front cover of Dury's album New Boots and Panties!! He left school at the age of fourteen. The Ian Dury biopic Sex & Drugs & Rock & Roll, released on 8 January 2010, features Bill Milner as Baxter.

of my self - Len Parrot's Memorial Lift is truly an amazing album. I compare its majesty to Pink Floyd's Dark Side of The Moon and Radiohead's OK Computer. While visiting Toronto I walked into an indy music store and this Baxter Dury CD was in rotation. The 2nd song on the CD, Oscar Brown caught me off guard with it's haunting and loose reference to the Velvet Undergrounds song 'O! sweet nuthin'. After listinging to first 3 tracks, the CD was already rated a MUST have. This is a decision I have not regreted. The sound of the CD is haunting and beautiful, much like Portishead but still maintaining a very unique sound.
