Graham Parker and the Rumour
Paramount N.W. Theatre, Seattle WA

FM broadcast (KISW), very good quality
mp3 @ 192 kbps
Artwork Included

Graham Parker emerged from the British Pub-rock scene in the mid-70's and was the real originator of the developing 'angry young rocker' new wave music style. His non-stop, high-energy, incendiary live performances with The Rumour are legendary, and his later, more refined, compelling, and evocative songwriting continued to set high standards for all singer-songwriters. This is a fine radio broadcast from 1979, the height of The Rumour days (and in support of arguably their best album, Squeezing Out Sparks), features many of their most well-known songs and their trademark unrelenting pace for the whole show. So, here's to Graham Parker, another of the all-time great, but sadly under-appreciated rock artists.
