Sparks, 2017

Recommended Posts

They've been quiet for a while but are back with a brilliant new album, Hippopotamus.  Possibly their best ever.

Saw them in Bristol this week (02 Academy, fantastic venue) and I can safely say that it was one of the best gigs I've ever seen.  Their young band is incredible.

The brothers are back.  And how!

Any other fans out there?

Another amazing night with Sparks, this time at the 02 Forum up in Kentish Town. Great venue. Set list shaken up a bit from the last leg. The love in the building was amazing. This is not an old band cashing in at the end of a career. At 69 Russell may be the Hardest Working Man In Show Business. And how the hell does he not look a day over forty?

Incredible night.

Jeremy Vine was singing their praises on Radio 2. He's a fan from way back and went to see them the other day - loved every second of it.

He may refer to himself as ' a square' but he does have a very good taste in music.  :-)

Was P61 in Kentish Town? In person?? :blink:

Indeed.  Three days, no less. In the crappiest b and b known to mankind.  Camden market was ace, though.  So was the Ethiopian restaurant.
