Full Description

GP reunited with his original band the Rumour for their first album together in 31 years.

Produced by Dave Cook and Graham Parker, the collection's 12 original tracks of driving and confessional rock and roll were recorded in upstate New York and feature the classic Rumour line-up of Brinsley Schwarz and Martin Belmont on guitars, Steve Goulding ( Waco Brothers) on drums, Andrew Bodnar on bass and Bob Andrews on keyboards.

''After a hiatus of over 30 years, it was extraordinary to hear the Rumour backing my material again,'' says Parker. ''We've finally made an album of true musical collaboration that we're all very proud of."

Short Description
  • On Three Chords Good he’s positively and proudly grizzled, coming off not unlike Vic Chesnutt, a singer that often sounded older than his years, though the attitude and delivery here are still pure Parker.

    — The Vinyl District
  • As far as rock ‘n’ roll is concerned, he’s on the side that keeps fighting for the music’s modern relevance when it stays true to its roots. And he’s back with the band that he started with, to remind us of his own continued relevance.

    — American Songwriter
  • Reunited band rides a wave of serendipity in a surprising, deeply satisfying return... his signature pissed-off snarl and cynical attitude reassuringly intact.
