My Favorite Obscure 80s Band

Russell and Ron Mael - Sparks. Started in the late 60s and are still recording.
Enjoy!

The guy on keys is great. And for some strange reason, his little stache makes me think of the picture of you and Bob Costas ... even more reasons to smile!

Man, your taste in music must have always been wacky..

That dude on the keyboard is just flat out freaky, well what am I talking about they both looked completely nuts. But the song was a little catchy.

BTW.. looking at Aug. 15-22 for Honduras. Think you might be interested?

CB, there is a great video of them on SNL where the keyboard player comes out and does this wacky dance. Look up Sparks: mickey mouse or Sparks: I predict. I predict is a great song. Incredible that they are still at it.

This town's not big enough for the both of us/and I'm not the one who's going to leave.

Man they are a mess.. I predict is FAR from being a "great song" but I will agree with you that it is "incredible that they are still at it".. they are horrible!
