True story – I’d solely vaguely heard of Sparks earlier than catching Edgar Wright’s documentary, THE SPARKS BROTHERS, at Sundance (learn my overview). I bear in mind seeing them in 1977’s Rollercoaster on TV one afternoon and considering they needed to be a faux band, with Ron Mael’s toothbrush mustache and Russell’s flowing locks. But actual they have been, and after watching the doc I fell deep down a Sparks rabbit gap. As we have been in lockdown right here in Montreal, I’ve spent my days listening to Sparks songs time and again, so it was a thrill to talk to them and Edgar Wright.

In our interview, we focus on how tough it’s performing as brothers for 50 years as sort of the anti-Oasis (brothers that also work effectively collectively), working with Leos Carax on Annette the musical, and being the authors of the best ever track about sperm – Tryouts for the Human Race!
