Sparks (Part I) (Podcast)


Sparks plays stripped-down acoustic versions of art rock songs off their new album Hippopotamus, along with a classic song, and the theme to Bookworm, Where Would We Be Without Books. Twenty-three albums into their brilliant career, Angeleno brothers Ron and Russell Mael discuss the poetry and the cliches of their new songs Probably Nothing and Missionary Position. Their smart, witty, funny, sad, and dear talents are on full display in their signature song This Town Ain’t Big Enough for Both of Us.

Sparks (Part II) (Podcast)


The second conversation with brothers Ron and Russell Mael of the band Sparks, along with stripped-down versions of two songs from their new album Hippopotamus. The brothers discuss major label support, their tour, and their writing for the upcoming Leos Carax film Annette. The esoteric sounds of people who find joy in murder are sung about in Life with the Macbeths. The show closes with their high art and pop art song Edith Piaf (Said It Better than Me).



この番組はオープニングとエンディングがスパークスのオリジナル曲なのですが、オープニング曲の"Where Would We Be Without Books"を生演奏しているところが聞き所です。

Brain Magazine (October 28, 2017/ French)
Sparks attack !


"We started trying to copy the English bands, so maybe the kids can try to copy us, and maybe by accident and with their sensitivity, they will find their style. Just as we found ours. So find something to copy, copy, and find something else. That's the advice I give."
