THE RETURN OF PARKERILLA

A venerable Brit-punk scales the Himalayas

No longer the Angry Young Man of his '70s New Wave origins—though he disdained the term then, no matter how well he stacked against Elvis CostelloGraham Parker has redoubled his ambition since his days with his pub-rockin’ outfit the Rumour. Thirty years after the band’s contentious, stark landmark album Squeezing Out Sparks, he records (and stomps all over SXSW) as a solo singer-songwriter of country-laced pop, with four albums released this decade and two books under his belt. (Carp Fishing on Valium, 2000, was a collection of short stories, and The Other Life of Brian, 2003, was a novel.) Expect some surrealistic indulgence, his one constant, in the palatial Himalayan collections of the Rubin Museum.
