Derek Hussey (aka “Derek The Draw”, who was Dury’s friend and minder) is now writing songs with Jankel and sings lead vocals. 2020 will be the band’s 42nd year. Currently there is a definitive documentary, Beyond the Call of Dury, in production by Free Seed Films focusing on the band members’ individual careers as well as their involvement with Ian Dury.
