GRAHAM PARKER

IMAGINARY TELEVISION

2010-03-30

It has been asked who needs reality television if you can have Graham Parker's Imaginary Television? Graham was asked to write a jingle for an upcoming TV sitcom, after being rejected twice by the television executives Graham in typical style said the hell with ya and wrote a complete concept CD. In typical style Graham has created a host of characters in his songs that may not fit into the typical mainstream including the gentlemen in the opening track "Weather Report" who watches the weather channel as he stares out the window at the crazy world. Who doesn't know somebody like that ? This CD in usual Graham fashion has more hooks in it's short 35 minutes then most bands include in an entire box set. It is my recommendation that the next time you go to watch the television, turn on some Imaginary Television and you will not be disappointed. Reviewed By: Gregg Saur
