Ron and Russell Mael: Documentary on Sparks made from found footage

I do love Sparks, those delightfully talented brothers Ron and Russell Mael, whose music has made the world so much better. They arrived in my life at the moment The Bonzos left, and offered a similar wit and sophistication with a syncopated beat. This documentary is made from found footage, for a journalism class in 2010, by jedenobel. It’s seems somehow right that Sparks should have a homemade fan documentary, and this one doesn’t disappoint, being both entertaining and informative, and…

Yesterday on the Sparks official Facebook presence there appeared a picture of an item that was published in the Independent (UK) newspaper on February 13 of this year, as part of a feature called “My Fantasy Band.” The selected musical superstar that appeared in the paper to announce his dream lineup that day was Ron Mael of Sparks, and in true Sparks fashion, his selections were hilarious, not without insight, and just a touch bizarre.

First impressions were that the music was highly original, interesting, complex and definitely ahead of it's time.

On the Eighth Day God created Sparks

That fall evening, Sparks played a blinder. One of the best concerts I've seen. I wasn't alone in that thought. A young lad dancing dementedly beside me in the packed arena said it was the best

Sparks fly: A brief trip through Ron & Russell Mael’s appearances on German TV over the years

You know you’re getting old when your love for a band hits middle age. Yikes. It’s forty-two years since I was first heard Sparks’ single “This Town Ain’t Big Enough For the Both of Us” on the radio. A couple of weeks later I caught them on Top of the Pops—the bottom-wiggling Bolanesque lead singer Russell Mael and the stern, strange, Hitler-mustachiod pianist Ron Mael. The differences of the brothers’ iconic images very much suited the joyous one-upmanship of their performance—the battle…
