The subtle feel of garden tools
"The essence of being a Sparks fan is that we know we are right and that everyone else is wrong." - Nicholas Royle, 30 Aug 2000 (Time Out, London)Ok this video doesn't include my other loves (beer or bicycles), but this Sparks video by Shaw Petronio has three essential ingredients. Russell Mael. Ron Mael. And kittys. Although Sparks did have two bicycles on the cover of their 1990 Rhino records compilation. You can also peruse the magnificent, idiosyncratic lyrics right here.
In my humble opinion, Sparks are the GREATEST MUSICAL GENIUSES IN THE HISTORY OF THE UNIVERSE. Or the last three decades. And I will fight to the bloody death to defend that opinion. Ever since I first saw Sparks on Countdown circa 1980
PS. Any chance of another Australiasian tour? I missed the 2001 Balls Tour due a bad combination of a nasty lurgie and being rather short of quids. Pretty, pretty please ...
