Graham Parker And The Rumour - Stick To Me LP 77 w Squeezing Out Sparks LP 79


SEARCH ABOVE FOR MORE and ADD ON:  Wonder why I never heard of this guy back in the day?  Hell, they sound just like my old favorite band the Dead Milkmen believe it or not!

Were you being serious when you said you never heard of Graham Parker "back in the day"?? I guess it depends on what you mean by back in the day and what you were listening to back then but GP and the Rumour were big. Does this mean you never heard of Nick Lowe or Elvis Costello or Ducks Deluxe or Brinsley Schwarz or . . . ?

I've posted more DD than any other blog I would say and introduced y'all to other pub rock bands and yeah I did think they reminded me of Elvis Costello who did give proper intro to me on the pump it up SNL show back in the late 70's--lighting a slow fuse in me to reject lots of questionably 'big' bands and continue my In Cars Gary Neumann fetish song soon to reject all corporate radio (not SNL!) and get weekend MRR community radio full force. I had a Brinsley orangish 2LP I got from a collector and just Hated it......thought it absolute rubbish and sold it quickly. Low is a slicker band from Duluth I have seen at many a show and part of our Radio K Universe but Mick may be on a playlist there but I'm not familiar.....as my dad tells me, "The 3 F's....be friendly be firm but don't be too familiar!

Nick Lowe, a slicker band from Duluth??? What are you talking about??? Martin Belmont of DD is in GP and the Rumour, just fyi. And the Brinsleys became the Rumour, all out of pub rock.

Sorry that was effin' spellcheck on my work cell. Low is a slo-core band from Duluth. Thanks for the details. I will just say, back in the day I did not have money to buy 5000+ records like I have done here by selling back most of them. Now I have 5 plastic bins of 'keepers'.
