Alan ParkerFinders Keepers
7" on Finders Keepers. Previously unreleased schizo post-punk / Moogy folk score to 1983 British TV Scouse-ploitation drama ‘One Summer’ from the vault of Kate Bush, Serge Gainsbourg and David Bowie’s best-kept secret session man, Alan Parker. From the one-man studio vault of the guitarist who adorned ‘Histoire De Melody Nelson’, ‘The Kick Inside’ AND ‘Diamond Dogs’ comes a post-punk, 80s TV soundtrack that aims to restore the unforgettable names of Billy and Icky in your nostalgic consciousness while liberating lost music of a significant unsung UK composer.
Bringing back fractured memories of Scouse teenage rebellion, sports casual weekend wear, chip shop violence and escape missions to the Welsh Valleys (where baby birds are fed Mars Bars and shoplifting is the local currency), the series ‘One Summer’ made an indelible impression of gritty realism, tragic heartbreak and woeful hope in the heartsgeneration in 1983.
