It’s been a long time coming waiting for the grand entrance of Graham Parker and the Rumour back into the biz. This band pretty much preceded the genre of punk without the savagery and annoying repetitive noise somehow deemed later to be the sound that became its definition. No, these guys were more along the vein of Joe Jackson (remember him?) and Elvis Costello and the like. With a barrage of wit and wailing about life and its many varied components Graham Parker and the Rumour managed to stay afloat with a flood of music we remember. The clever lyrics border some of Bob Dylan’s epic ideas and call for your attention. Pay attention to this live performance, more live than ever before.
