    Sparks has been one of my top 3 favorite bands for 40 years…. this doc is a HUGE deal for me ..couldn’t be more thrilled.

    That “if you had say, directed a Marvel film” line was particularly brutal Seth. I don’t know whether it was intentional or not, but damn

    I don’t recall hearing them. I have listed to and followed many bands as well as solo artists. Here in the USA, we’re they a one hit wonder like The Jaggerz?

    When I saw the thumbnail, I thought it was Andy Samberg playing a character.

    I can’t believe that people haven’t heard of Sparks. If they don’t know the band’s name they’ve at least heard This Town Ain’t Big Enough For The Both Of Us, surely?!

  • Sol Ferraro 3 years ago

    Even half way through this interview I was still wondering whether that band was real or just part of the most elaborated mockumentary

    Sparks: On the surface a simple pop band, but once you get the lyrics clear it’s all rather naughty with a Carry On style of innuendo.

    It has all the hallmarks of a joke. These guys are cheese overload!

    never heard of them before seeing the trailer for the movie. Decided to see the documentary because I am an Edgar Wright fan and seen all he has done (except the low budget western one). Watched it last night, an absolute delight, i left the theater and immediately started playing their music, definitively recommend everyone to watch this

    Having seen Sparks often on Top of the Pops (BBC tv’s weekly chart show) in my teens, i hope the documentary answers my nagging question : why the Hilter-referencing hair and mustache?

  • Joe Ganz 3 years ago

    Indiscreet is a masterpiece.

  • Kevin Riddell 3 years ago

    When I’m With You in 1980 was their last hit here in Australia

    Sounds like a fun doco. I’ve known about “Sparks” for many years. Didn’t back in the 80s, but when I started archiving soundtracks from the era, and extending them to included all of the songs heard in the films (instead of just the official release), then I became a fan of the group. So I have 15 of their best tunes in my collection.
