    Parker and the Rumour’s first album “Howlin’ Wind” was recorded in London in late 1975 and released in April 1976 to widespread critical acclaim. This was followed in the same year by “Heat Treatment” and a hit EP, “The Pink Parker,” released on pink vinyl. When Parker signed a lucrative deal with Arista records in 1979, he released the Jack Nitzsche produced “Squeezing Out Sparks.” The album, which contained such classics as “You Can’t Be Too Strong,” “Discovering Japan” and “Passion Is No Ordinary Word” reached #44 in the US album charts, sold a quarter of a million copies and was widely hailed as a masterpiece. Parker and the Rumour toured extensively in the year of its release.


    In May 2011, Parker called the Rumour members out of the blue to work with him once again on a new album that would be their first together in over 30 years. The new album, “Three Chords Good,” was recorded in July of that year. In a strange quirk of fate, not more than two weeks after the band confirmed that they would indeed be conducive to a recording reunion, movie and TV writer/director/producer Judd Apatow got hold of Parker and proposed a meeting. Apatow loosely described to Parker a movie project he was writing in which he thought Parker might have a small part to play. The now-finished movie, “This Is 40” is due for theatrical release on December 21st 2012 and features Parker acting as himself and performance sequences in a duo setting (with Tom Freund) and with The Rumour. “Three Chords Good” is set for release in October 2012 and a tour of America will follow from the end of November through December.
