******
Wer die Einzel-LP's nicht hat, dem ist diese "alte" Zusammenstellung ohne Zweifel zu empfehlen
*****
Kurios und sympathisch ... und erst noch sehr melodiös.
***
beginnt stark (gleich ihr größter kracher überhaupt), wird aber bald schon nervig, so wie die 2 figuren eben waren..
******
Eine der schrägsten und schrillsten Gruppen des Glamrocks der 70er Jahre waren The Sparks, obwohl sie eher untypisch für diese Szene waren. In den USA interessierte sich kaum ein Mensch für die Gruppe, die zunächst unter dem Namen Halfnelson an den Start ging. Hier gelang ihnen lediglich mit „Wonder Girl“ Ende 1972 ein sehr bescheidener Hit. Also beschlossen die Brüder Ron und Russel Mael, die Köpfe der Gruppe, in Europa ihr Glück zu suchen und gingen nach England. Hier schien man auf so etwas wie die Sparks nur gewartet zu haben. Mit einer aus englischen Musikern zusammengestellten Begleitband entstand unter der Regie von Muff Winwood das Album „Kimono My House“ und die Single „This Town Ain’t Big Enough For Both Of Us“ bescherte der Gruppe im Sommer 1974 den Durchbruch. Mit ihrer explosiven Bühnenshow galten die Sparks als die Sensation schlechthin, was weniger an der Musik als vielmehr an Ron und Russell lag. Mit schriller, aufgedrehter Stimme fegte Russell wie ein Irrer über die Bühnen, während der stets desinteressiert dreinschauende Ron wie vom Wahnsinn getrieben seine Tasteninstrumente bearbeitete. Mit seinem Kurzhaarschnitt, seinem Oberlippenbärtchen und seinem stechenden Blick wirkte er wie eine Karikatur von Adolf Hitler, quasi ein Hitler On The Rocks. Klar, daß so ein solches Outfit Aufsehen erregte. Mit „Amateur Hour“, der wundervollen Ballade „Never Turn You Back On Mother Earth“, „Something For The Girl With Everything“ und den beiden Swing-beeinflußten „Get The Swing“ und „Looks, Looks, Looks“ gelang den Sparks bis Herbst 1975 eine Reihe weiterer Hits, dann hatte das Publikum erst einmal genug von ihnen.
Der Sampler „The Best of Sparks“ aus dem Jahre 1977 beinhaltet neben den Hits der Jahre 1974/75 einige gute Titel aus den Alben „Kimono My House“, „Propaganda“ und „Indiscreet“. Wer schräge Rockmusik mag, der sollte sich unbedingt einmal diesen Sampler reinziehen. Auch wenn Ron und Russell bis in die Gegenwart immer wieder mit interessanten Alben aufwarten konnten, besser als in den Jahren 1974/75 waren sie nie wieder.
