Graham parker - live! alone in america


Parker was born in London in 1950. He was a pupil at Chobham Secondary Modern School in Surrey. After the arrival of the Beatles , Parker and some other 12/13 year olds formed the Deepcut Three, soon renamed the Black Rockers. None of the members actually learned to play their instruments, however, and were merely dress-up bands, adopting Beatle haircuts, black jeans and polo neck sweaters. By the time Parker was 15 he was a fan of soul music, especially Otis Redding , and would go to dance clubs in the nearby towns of Woking and Camberley where there was a thriving appreciation of Soul music , Motown and Ska . Parker left school at 16 and went to work at the Animal Virus Research Institute in Pirbright , Surrey , where he bred animals for foot-and-mouth disease research. At 18 he left the job and moved to Guernsey in the Channel Islands where he took a variety of jobs, picking tomatoes, digging ditches, collecting money from pinball machines, and working in a bakery. In Guernsey he bought an acoustic guitar and began to learn fingerpicking style and began writing songs with lyrics heavily influenced by the psychedelic music of the time.
