Progrography

Graham Parker
One of the original angry young men to storm out of England (Elvis Costello and Joe Jackson being the notable others) and conquer the minds of music critics everywhere. His first three records (featuring Nick Lowe as producer) failed to make the commercial impact of JJ and Elvis, despite the critical consensus that Parker was their equal as a songwriter. His fortunes changed when he switched US record labels, releasing a string of US Top 100 albums throughout the '80s. As the '90s dawned, Parker had slipped back off the commercial radar screen but continued to delight fans with intelligent rock music that maintained the high standards he'd set earlier.
