Any SPARKS fans on DL?

Their latest album, THE SEDUCTION OF INGMAR BERGMAN is pretty awesome.

They are one of the most under-rated bands ever.

Here's COOL PLACES live w/ Jane Weidlin.

No fans, OP. But the entire team posts here.

Sorry I thought you meant the basketball team.

I can't stand that little shit.

Oh how I love you, OP. I haven't kept up with them but I lived and died for them in my youth. I'll check it out. Have you heard neko case's cover of 'never turn your back on mother earth?'

Only know them because of the Siouxsie cover of their song "This Town ain't big enough for both of us".

I like "When I kiss you (I hear Charlie Parker playing)".

I thought the band broke up when Muriel disowned Robin.

Are you talking 'Number One Song In Heaven' Sparks? God I love that song.

I own some of their early Island recordings, "Kimono My House" was a brain-jiggling classic. I'd recommend it unreservedly, but with most people's taste being what it is, it would probably go over now Stateside about as well as it did in 1974 (Sparks was huge across the pond).%0D %0D %0D And there was also the matter of Ron Mael's resemblance to a certain chancellor elected in 1933...still, you gotta love a band that writes a song about an impatient Romeo sizing up the hereafter while he awaits Juliette.
