While this may be news to Agent 007 lovers, there's more than one Brit named Bond. While that fictional film character with the first name of James may garner the bigger audience, it is another Bond-Graham Bond-who has left a long-lasting impression with his influential music. Although many consider Alexis Korner as the father of the British blues/R&B movement, Graham Bond also deserves credit for its development. Loud, hypnotic and neurotic is how Melody Maker reporter Chris Welch once described Bond's music. It wails, screams and tears at the senses for minutes on end, demanding either complete attention or complete rejection.
