Graham Parker: Nosey Parker

Phil Sutcliffe, Sounds, 19 June 1976

"There he goes looking like a cross between Bob Dylan and Bruce Springsteen," jested Martin Belmont, Rumour guitarist. 'He' was GRAHAM PARKER on his way to pick up another bargain in Amsterdam's flea market. Herein, PHIL SUTCLIFFE, our canals and old barges correspondent, pursues the man, Brinsley Schwarz cleans his jeans, and Mr. S. concludes that Graham Parker looks and sounds extremely like Graham Parker. And that's good!
