With his Rumour packed away, Graham enlists a new gang, The Goldtops, on this record (who, incidently feature former Rumour member Martin Belmont). Let’s hand over to Mr Parker himself to tell the story of how this all came to fruition… ODD BEGINNINGS, LOGICAL FUTURES WHILST ON A U.K. duo tour with Brinsley Schwarz in 2016, I got an email from Judd Apatow asking if I had any spare songs that might be considered for “one of” his new TV shows, as he put it. I presumed that meant something previously recorded with a band but not released, so I said I didn’t. But Brinsley and I had three days off and I returned to London where it occurred to me that of a bunch of tunes I’d been working on, one song, “Love Comes,” might be of interest, and I thought it was finished enough to send him. I stuck the iPhone on the counter up against the kitchen tiles (which produced a nice kitchen tile slapback effect) and recorded it, voice and acoustic guitar only. Judd loved it and asked how I would record it. I bluffed some kind of vague answer then promptly forgot about it!
