...running out of sockets for these plugs, I admit.|
HOWEVER, I can't help it. I'd stand in the rain & mud on a field of banana slugs, if I had to, to catch one of Graham Parker's shows. When a friend first encouraged me to see him LIVE in the 70's, he said: "he can barely contain his energy; he's like a panther about to spring"...
I'd already discovered what a biting, often brilliant & usually smartass lyricist he is; over time, he's kept his good humor, his edge, & occasional sweetness. Good, solid, feisty rock & roll, fine musicians, accomplished singer. Although my strongest ties are to some earlier works (esp. "Squeezing Out Sparks" and "Stick to Me"), his just-released CD, "Deepcut to Nowhere" is terrific. I was so pleased!
As for attitude, one of the catchy tunes here is: "Syphilis and Religion". & there's a note on the CD: "This has been a GP production for STEAL THIS MUSIC INC. / a division of UpYours LTD."
He'll be at Slim's the night after Gregg's Eggs: Sat. Jan. 12 - $20
a good time guaranteed...
