Baxter Dury, Rising Festival, The Forum, 7th June 2022 by Mary Boukouvalas

Balearic crooner, glamourous punk, acerbic poet—Baxter Dury’s persona is kitted out in many finely-tailored guises. A villain with a heart of gold, Dury is a hopeless romantic, wading through filthy gutters in search of the transcendent.

Over two decades Baxter Dury has performed something of a sneak attack, compiling a formidable catalogue of scuzzy disco, French-inflected house music, and shuddering post-punk that can kick you right in the tear ducts. Yes, Dury’s old man Ian is an icon of British music (that’s a tiny Baxter on the cover of New Boots and Panties!!), but Dury has crafted his own world, one that treasures the women who truly raised him.
