    Awesome!

    I admit I only learned of these guys a couple of years ago when I saw them do the Ingmar Bergman play with Guy Maddin, but became a fan as a result. They're fantastic!

    only got one album from them (No. 1 in Heaven from emusic) and haven't given enough of a thorough. Liking those first couple of tracks. Go so many places in the songs that it's hard to recall what happened before, but you know it was glammed up and sexy. Someone get me a tea refill downstairs.

    I listened to them a bit in high school, I didn't know they had such an expansive career. I hadn't thought of these guys in forever.

    Have heard some of my favorite bands cite them as an influence, but never gave them a listen for some reason. Which album should I start with Pot?

    9/11 Swans @ The Roxy
    9/23 Modest Mouse @ Pappy & Harriet's
    10/25 Beach Goth @ The Observatory

    No way that happens. Look at the difference in placement on the poster.

    This wont work in the day/heat and they should get a slot around 6-8pm in a tent. Then move onto the 2 headliners.

    They have a huge catalog and you really can't go wrong. From glam to new wave to synthpop! If you don't know where to start check out The Ultimate Sparks Collection ‎box set on Rhino which covers the 70s & 80s. and pay attention to the lyrics if you want a laugh!

    Also check the DVD "Sparks Live In London" which features the song "how to get your ass kicked"

    Though they were a bit of a campy joke back in the 80's. I'll go if they promise to play eaten by the monster of love.

    I mean. They are a campy joke. They also happen to be incredibly witty, write great songs and have a monstrously influential sound.

    Americans don't "take the piss" anyway. That's something that only the Brits would be willing to do. Are you taking the piss out of me? ARE YOU?! HUH? Because that would be both moronic, and disgusting. Someone took the piss. That much is certain.
