First Time on CD

Purity Of Essence - The American Edition

In 1980, The Rumour recorded their third and last album in two different versions. The UK version has been available for some time on CD, but the US version has never been re-released until now. This is an entirely different recording from the CD that is currently available and has been out of print for 30 years. It not only features three different songs, but it was recorded at a different time and place and has a radically different feel to it. In our opinion, it is superior to the original.

CARP FISHING ON VALIUM

Garden gnomes mysteriously vanish from suburban lawns... a momentous force enters a 13-year-old boy from the third rail of a train line and gives him powers that he uses to harass a local fishwife... Mick Jagger is killed when a bus runs over him and the most unlikely of prospects is interviewed for his replacement. These are just a few of the predicaments in this eccentric collection of tales, placed in the "desolate southern suburbs" of England as well as Morocco, New York, and Cleveland, all featuring the Zelig-like protagonist Brian Porker. First published by St Martin's Press in 2000, this new edition of Carp Fishing on Valium by rocker Graham Parker now includes "Kernley Days," an interconnected trilogy of previously unpublished stories.
