Sparks

Sparks are an American rock and pop music band formed in Los Angeles in 1968 by brothers Ron Mael (keyboards) and Russell Mael (vocals),initially under the name Halfnelson, changing their name and that of their debut record to “Sparks” in 1972. Best known for their quirky approach to song writing, Sparks' music is often accompanied by cutting andacerbic lyrics, and an idiosyncratic stage presence, typified in the contrast between Russell's wide-eyed hyperactive frontman antics and Ron'ssedentary scowling.
