Must-See Music Pick! From the Music Editors: View Music Picks 
It's fitting that this former "angry young man" (as British journalists called the pub-rocker) would go on to prod the bubble of success, only to have it burst in favor of similar artist Elvis Costello. Still, 1979's Squeezing Out is regarded as one of the finest rock albums ever made, thanks to its searing wit and New Wave leanings. Now under Bloodshot Records' wing, in company with Jon Langford and friends, Parker and his new band The Figgs are mounting a comeback that's even more punk than his glory days. (Gavin Paul)
