It's finally here! The new Sparks album 'A Steady Drip, Drip, Drip' is released in all its glory.

Following the digital release in May, the album is now available on CD, deluxe CD (book edition), double black vinyl, double coloured vinyl, double picture disc and cassette.

 

With A STEADY DRIP, DRIP, DRIP, Sparks have drawn on the many styles and many great moments in a multi-faceted career that began in their native Los Angeles in 1967, while retaining the unique identity. Whatever style they embrace, and they have embraced most – pop, rock, New Wave, synth-pop, disco, dance, electro, orchestral, opera – they always remain ineffably, irrefutably, inescapably, undeniably Sparks.” LouderThanWar
 
“No band should by rights sound as sharp, melodic and funny more than 50 years into their career. But Sparks are no ordinary band.” – Q
 
Sparks remain deftly untouchable” 9/10 LineofBestFit
“a work of genius” 9/10 Clash
"The Picassos of art rock." Associated Press
“A masterclass” Northern Transmissions
“They’ve done it again” ***** Record Collector

Lol - no I don’t get paid

Just trying to make sure they get as much exposure as they can - a lot of excellent music that people miss as its not mainstream - seen Sparks 36 times live since Caird Hall in 1974 ( support band that night was Pilot )

Fair enough.  I do own a couple of Sparks records including the recent greatest hits.

 

I have seen some bands like the Manics probably more than 36 times.  I have honestly lost count.

Cool video - Cyriak is brilliant. Terrible music though.

As far as sparks go, before this thread I'd only ever heard 'This Town isn't Big Enough' in the 70s, which I quite like. I don't like any of this stuff though, it's as if there is something missing, but I can't put my finger on what. Love that video though.

The start of that sounds and looks like the intro to some late Friday night, mid-noughties quiz show. I like some Sparks songs, not that though.

 

Might check out more of their earlier stuff as I like Beat the Clock and The Number One Song on Heaven.
