Why I love Sparks, part three million and eight

The BAND, not the drink. I’m sorry I have to say that, but anyway.

There’s a lot more I could say about them right now, but for now, please read over this announcement of details on their upcoming album — I love these guys, I really do:

Sparks’ new album ‘Exotic Creatures Of The Deep’ will be released on May 19th and the first single ‘Good Morning’ will be released on May 12th.

The tracklisting is:

1 Intro

2 Good Morning

4 I Can’t Believe That You Would Fall For All The Crap In This Song

    My mate John Mendelsohn was in Sparks eons ago in a very early incarnation. Can’t believe the’ve made a comeback. “This Town Ain’t Big Enough – one of the best pop records evah! In fact, now you’ve reminded me, I’m watching it on YouTube. Increasing heartbeat, indeedy. Brilliant!

    Heheh, arguably they’ve been making comebacks since the mid-seventies, it’s just a question of when and where. 21 albums didn’t get recorded out of nowhere! 😀 But that is still truly one of the best songs ever. Love the last couple albums so I have high hopes for this one.

    > Lighten Up, Morrissey
    This is, of course, a cover, no? Thanks, David S

  6. Ned Raggett Says:

    Nope, an original. And not specifically about Morrissey, apparently:

    Sparks have refuted speculation that a new song
    attacks Morrissey.

    Lighten Up, Morrissey is actually about a man who is
    unlucky in love, because his girlfriend doesn’t think
    he’ll ever match up to Moz.

    Sparks’ manager Sue Harris told PS: “It’s a tribute to
    Morrissey. The Maels are big admirers of Morrissey –
    he’s been a Sparks fan for years, and the feeling is
    mutual. “
