Graham Parker

For nearly 30 years, Graham Parker has been slinging a signature sound across continents and airwaves that has rightly earned him a spot in the pantheon of truly original and influential figures in rock and roll. Since his early days with his band the Rumour (with whom he has two albums in Rolling Stone's Top 100 Albums of All Time), Graham has coupled punk's energy with his deeply rooted love of American R&B, country and soul music. He's got a snotty barroom brawler's rasp and sneer, a soulman's swagger and an ear for indelible hooks and pop songcraft. For more about Graham Parker, refer to his official web site.

Cultists, Extinct Marsupials, and Cryptozoologists: In Other Words, Your Average Rock Tour.


Some might call Brian Porker's musical career washed up. As the acid-tongued front man for the Soulbilly Shakers, a 1970s one-hit-wonder, he penned the hit single "Knee Trembler," a sweet little ditty about having sex while standing up. But sales for his newest record are miniscule and his concert crowds have been steadily dwindling. This being said, it's not hard to figure out why Brian is angry with just about every person who has the misfortune of drawing his attention. The brunt of most of his vitriol is his manager, Tarquin Steed, who in an attempt to broaden his client's fan base, has just signed Brian up for consecutive tours of the nether regions of Scandinavia, Tasmania, and the Arctic Circle. Just when Brian thinks things can't get any worse, he has separate encounters with a group of cultists who believe him to be their prophet reincarnate, a rare marsupial dog, and a group of Nordic cryptozoologists who will do anything to get their hands on the beast! But then again, who said the life of a rock star would be uneventful?

Live at Newlands Tavern

This is the earliest known live recording of Graham Parker and the Rumour, taped from the audience sometime in 1975 at Newlands Tavern in London. This very rough and possibly incomplete audience tape has been making the rounds among GP afficianados for several years now, and we feel that despite the less than stellar sound quality, it deserves to be heard by more fans.


Originally offered as a free bonus with a previous Official Bootleg, it's now being made available for sale by popular demand. This is a professional quality glass-mastered CD, not a home made CD-R. But be forewarned that the sound quality is not of the highest standard, and is being offered as is - without editing or doctoring in any way, and so imperfections will be obvious. But the historical importance and the amazing energetic performances make this well worth the listen. Plus, it features such rarities as "Express Delivery" (only known recording with the Rumour), "The Raid" (two years before it appeared on the Stick To Me album), and the instrumental "Rockin' Hawk".

This is an EP containing songs left off of Platinum Bastard. Songs include Three Martini Lunch, Anniversary, the rarely performed Here It Comes Again, and an alternate live version of Love Is a Burning Question.

80’s Reverb Rules OK!

This is the latest entry in the “Official Bootleg” series.

Recorded live at the Limfjords Festival in Denmark, August 2, 1986. This concert was from a brief tour  between “Steady Nerves” and “The Mona Lisa’s Sister”, and features the only instance of the band known as Graham Parker and The Fact. This was a tight four piece band that featured Brinsley Schwarz, Andrew Bodnar, and Jimmy Copley. Some of the material on this album was intended for the “lost” Atlantic album that was never produced. We think you’ll find it quite unique!
