Graham Parker "Almost Thankgiving Day"


For over 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 ...

Editorial Reviews

Whoever decreed that rockers had to sacrifice their edge to attain maturity obviously never met Graham Parker. The Brit-born, New York-based singer-songwriter has been making records since the mid-'70s, yet 2001's Deepcut to Nowhere is every bit as energetic and passionate as was his debut, Howlin' Wind, back in 1976. He is aided immeasurably here by a reunion with drummer Steve Goulding from the Rumour, the group with which Parker partnered for his first few albums. The quartet on these sessions is fronted by the singer's surprisingly adept electric and acoustic guitar work. The band--also including bassist Pete Donnelly of the Figgs and organist Professor Louie--is elastic enough to accommodate the customary GP range of moods and styles, from full-bore folk rock ("I'll Never Play Jacksonville Again") to ballads that can be R&B inflected ("Depend on Me") or more rural in tone ("Blue Horizon"). And should you question whether the razor-sharp attitude that produced bilious classics like "Mercury Poisoning" has survived, the song titles "It Takes a Village Idiot" and "Syphilis & Religion" assure you this Parkerilla remains proudly unmellowed. --Ben Edmonds

5.0 out of 5 stars GREAT to have him back, regardless... August 27, 2001
Format:Audio CD
While I have no argument with the opinion of the "Castro" reviewer (someone who is so obviously a SERIOUS GP fan has to be respected), I don't see this album in quite the same vein. I've always enjoyed the different facets of GP's talent and therefore grooved quite nicely on the rockin' "Dark Days" & "Jacksonville". The highlights ARE indeed the more "adult" songs. "Depend On Me" is thematically AND musically the sequel to "Wake Up (Next To You)", "Tough On Clothes" IS a GREAT song (anyone with a teenage daughter can't help but laugh out loud), "Socks'n'Sandals" will make all 40/50 somethings cringe, and the last verse in "Blue Horizon" literally brought tears to my eyes (first time in a LONG time a song has been able to do that for me). I COULD go on & on, but the important thing is GP is BACK!! Where does this album fit in his 25 year pantheon? Can't say yet. Like the artists that I consider his peers, Bob Dylan & Van Morrison, GP's music is never "easily digestible". It takes repeated listenings (and sometimes YEARS) to fully appreciate what lays in the grooves. All I know is that I enjoy every second of GP's first studio album in five years and hope he won't wait so long to make me so happy again.

5.0 out of 5 stars Mature groove with an edge September 3, 2001
Format:Audio CD
Ten seconds into the first track on this CD, Dark Days, I find myself smiling from ear to ear. There are a very limited group of artists that can offer us such an organic groove, but Graham Parker is definitely one of them.This album is very varied in music and lyrics, from hardrocking and cynical to soft (if this is possible for GP?) and romantic sweet with a little humour stuck in between, GP covers the full spectra. The musicians play tastefully with an overall acoustic feel and GP himself sings better than ever since he varies his singing style more than ever before. Among the highlights are the groovin' Dark Days, the beautiful Depend on Me, the touching Blue Horizons, the funny Tough on Clothes and Socks'n'Sandals, the catchy Syphilis & Religion ... I could go on and on. The album ends with a breathtaking slow song called Last Stop is nowhere, where GP sings like a Nick Lowe of our days with a low, rich voice. It is plain beautiful. This is a very, very good album where in my opinion most of the songs are as good as they get.

4.0 out of 5 stars The long wait is over October 10, 2001
Format:Audio CD
I've been waiting patiently for five years for Graham Parker to release some new music.Well, the long wait is over.Acid Bubblegum was released in 1996 and it was excellent. I rate this new release, Deepcut To Nowhere right up there with all his recent releases. Grahams sense of humor shines on cuts like "I'll Never Play Jacksonville Again" and "Socks And Sandles". His songwriting skills are sharp as ever on basically every song.Graham has a way of making the average listener part of each song, drawing you into each cut. His voice is strong and his band (including original Rumour drummer, Steve Goulding) is tight.Artists such as Graham Parker are hard to find. He has great songwriting skills, good musicians and the quality of music that you just don't hear on the radio anymore.Do yourself a favor and purchase this release. Take the time to sit down and give it a few spins and I know you'll end up agreeing with me.
I take it with me in my car so I'm not stuck listening to the radio. What a pleasure it is to have Graham back. Let's just hope he doesn't wait another five years to release some more excellent music!

4.0 out of 5 stars another great GP disk! March 31, 2003
Format:Audio CD
I'm glad to see there are still some people out there willing to invest in and support artists like Graham Parker these "dark days". Hats off to Razor and Tie Records too for its support of GP and other commercial and artistic musicians. GP has always worked in a successful commercial framework and not sacrificed artistic vision. I think that's why he is still successful today.
I agree that Blue Horizon is the best cut on the disk. It's beautiful. Possibly the culmination or swan song of a long career. But there's not a bad cut on the disk. I've been a fan of GP's since the 80's and often thought he never got the appreciation he deserved...speaking of which, anybody know if he's been nominated for the Rocknroll hall of fame yet? Enough said...
Meanwhile, GP has one of the most consistent bodies of work in rock today and is still cranking it out. As with this cd his work never sounds old or dated. This is a great intro to GP's body of work and covers many themes of GP's records over the years. Love, politics, culture, sociology...Tough, angry, tender, funny, sometimes all at once. Few others artists today have such insight into the human condition or have done more with a rocknroll song while at the same time rocking with such minimal production. The flashes of mandolin on the disk were greatly appreciated. While I concur about how nice it would be to see him live with band I've seen him live alone twice and he's one of the few artists who captivates an audience with nothing more than his voice, songs, guitar, harmonica. Enjoy this disk.

5.0 out of 5 stars Delivers the goods! October 3, 2001
Format:Audio CD
This album delivers very strong material. In my opinion, it's a more consistent and satisfying group of songs versus GP's last studio album, Acid Bubblegum (an album I frankly don't listen to anymore). Deepcut to Nowhere is closer to The Mona Lisa's Sister and Struck by Lightning in sound, but the great thing is you can actually hear Graham's singing hone some of that harshness and bite from Squeazing out Sparks and Howlin Wind ( a plus for old fan's who favor his earlier stuff ). Rewards you on repeated listenings, too. I can't seem to take this one out of my cd player! Favorite tracks: If IT EVER STOPS RAINING, HIGH HORSE and DEPEND ON ME (a should-be hit song if radio played him).
