The Rumour

~ Group


The Rumour were a British rock band in the late 1970s and early 1980s. They are best known as the backup band for Graham Parker, whose early records (from 1976 to 1980) were credited to Graham Parker & The Rumour. However, The Rumour were also recording artists in their own right, releasing three albums: Max (1977), Frogs, Sprouts, Clogs And Krauts (1978), and Purity of Essence (1980). The group broke up at the end of 1980, but reunited as Parker's backing band in 2011, and have performed and recorded with Parker ever since.

The band undertook a short final UK tour in October 2015, finishing with a final concert at the London Fusion on October 17th, 2015. At this show, the surviving members of the horn section also reunited, the first time for 33 years.
