* PunkRock: The Blockheads' popularity peaked during punk and New Wave eras. Songs like "Plaistow Patricia" and "Blockheads" reflect the punk influence. After the original group broke up, Mick Gallagher and Norman Watt-Roy played with Music/TheClash on the ''Sandinista!'' album (apparently, they were promised co-writing credit on "The Magnificent Seven" but never actually got it).
