The melody for 'Hit Me With Your Rhythm Stick' was written by Ian Dury and Chaz Jankel during a jam session. It was inspired by the piano section of 'Wake Up and Make Love with Me', the opening track from Ian Dury's debut solo album 'New Boots & Panties'. Later that same day Dury had procured some lyrics for the song, which he had written some time previously. Jankel was The Blockheads guitarist and keyboardist. The artwork for 'Hit Me With Your Rhythm Stick' was designed by the highly influential and enigmatic designer Barney Bubbles who, in 1977, was the creative director at Stiff Records. Described by Dury as the most incredible designer he's ever come across, Barney's distinctive record designs, and his rebranding of the NME in 1979 helped forge the identity of British independent music into the 1980s and beyond.
