Charles Jeremy Jankel (born 16 April 1952, Stanmore, England) professionally known as Chaz Jankel, is a musician best known as the keyboard player and guitarist with Ian Dury and the Blockheads. He was co-writer with Dury of the band’s best-known songs during its commercial peak in the late 1970s.
Jankel was responsible for much of the funk influence in the Blockheads’ music; his fondness for it is also evident in his solo career.
First hooking up with Dury as part of the pub group Kilburn and the High-Roads in the early part of the 1970s, Jankel was asked by Dury to join his new outfit, and appeared on such Blockheads releases as 1977’s New Boots and Panties!! and 1979’s Do It Yourself, before leaving the group. But in 1981, Jankel teamed up once more with Dury (sans the Blockheads), for the release Lord Upminster, which spawned the U.S. Top 40 dance hit “Spasticus Autisticus.” But by this time, Jankel had become more interested in pursuing a solo career and he issued several releases for A&M such as 1980’s self-titled debut, 1981’s Chasanova and Questionnaire (the latter of which contained the U.S. dance hit “Glad to Know You,” a collaboration with Dury, plus the MTV video hit of the title track).
