And today, noon Pacific Time, as can be viewed here, Sparks will perform their newest album, Exotic Creatures of the Deep, in its entirety. I’ve still not heard it! I hope to pick up a copy this weekend, though.
I wish I had more to say in this post but it’s a very busy day — the last one of the academic year! — and there’s a lot of little things I need to do so I can enjoy the broadcast of the show on my lunch break. For now, though, I just wanted to say things to everyone who’s swung by to read the various drafts and brief show reviews — and to promise that this will be the last I’ll post on Sparks for a bit! Much as I love them there’s other music out there, of course!
But thanks are due to the band, their manager Sue Harris, CDPulse for hosting the majority of the broadcasts and all for pulling this whole thing off. It was a treat to be able to see all of this go down over the course of the last few weeks, and the timing was perfect given that next week I’m off on a two week vacation. Thanks to everyone again, looking forward to the LA show!
