Biografía

Admirador confeso de Bob Dylan, Van Morrison y los Rolling Stones, Graham Parker es uno de los grandes nombres aparecidos en el denominado circuito pub-rock británico de los años 70, bandas y solistas que intentaban recupera la esencia básica del rock’n’roll y los sonidos tradicionales del blues, R&B, soul o country.

Graham Parker (nacido el 18 de noviembre de 1950 en Londres), un antiguo gasolinero y criador de cobayas, principió en esto de la música interpretando soul y R&B en bandas como The Black Rockers y Deep Cut Three. Cuando algunas de sus composiciones llegaron a manos de Dave Robinson, éste le animó a formar una banda a mediados de los 70, los Rumour, la cual estaba integrada por los guitarristas Brinsley Schwarz y Martin Belmont, el bajista Andrew Boznar, el batería Steve Goulding y el teclista Bob Andrews. Varios de ellos había tocado en Brinsley Schwarz y Ducks Deluxe.


La banda fue promocionada con ahínco por Charlie Gillet, un famoso discjockey, hecho que le granjeó su entrada en la industria del disco con la publicación en Vertigo/Mercury de “Howlin’ Wind” (1976), un álbum debut aparecido en julio de 1976 que fue producido por Nick Lowe.

El álbum, magnífico ejemplo de vívido pub-rock con trazas de Stones, Dylan, artist]The Band, Bruce Springsteen o Van Morrison en cortes henchidos de emoción, acritud y agudeza, entre los que destacan “White Honey”, “Back to schooldays”, “Lady Doctor”, “Silly Thing”, “Soul Shoes” o la propia “Howlin’ Wind”, fue muy bien recibido por la crítica aunque sus resultados comerciales no alcanzaron excesivas cotas de ventas.

    Saw him supporting Bob Dylan at Hammersmith Odeon in 1991, he blew Bob off the stage, and I didn't even know any of his songs. Then again, I didn't recognise any of Bobs either, they were indecipherable against the originals and couldn't make out a word he was singing.

    Parker is definitely an under appreciated songwriter and performer. I've seen him a few times--once in the 70s with the Rumour and most recently in a small club solo. Both were excellent high energy performances, that latter with songs from his most recent albums.

    Agree with all of below, a truly underestimated British Artist/singer songwriter,his recent material is still full of energy,jnterest and emotive longing, not to say funny at times, listen to England 's latest clown on "Discovered America" album.

    Graham Parker deserves more credit.

    Too bad that most of the top tracks are from his great, older recordings. His more recent work is also excellent and worth discovering. He has grown up, like Ian Hunter, Dylan and Lou Reed. Clearly an artist that you listen to for the LONG haul.

    getting the Stiff boxset was like, the greatest thing that ever happened to me. Squeezing out Sparks + Live Sparks is GREAT.

    He deserved/deserves so much more. Many of his songs are as good as/better than some of Costellos best ones. I'll keep listening to mr Parker forever. Some of his songs mean so much to me. True love.

    Saw him at Brit's pub in Minneapolis last Sunday. I think he is one of the most underrated rock and roll artists of all time. With all due respect to Elvis Costello, he ain't got shit on Graham!
