Since the moment they emerged into the mainstream in 1974, armed with the hit "This Town Ain't Big Enough for Both of Us," the band Sparks—brothers Ron and Russell Mael—has endeared themselves to successive generations of fans, not only with their wry humor and quirkiness, but also with a lyrical and musical inventiveness that sees them listed among the most influential acts ever. Exclusive interviews and insights trace the group from its earliest strivings in California up to the present, while author Dave Thompson's unique eye for period detail and context reveals just how intelligently Sparks has predicted the course of popular music over the past quarter century. A full worldwide discography, including albums, singles, and audio-visual material, make it a must for Sparks fans everywhere.
Dave Thompson is a leading rock expert and the author of more than 100 rock books, including Cream, Funk, Go Phish, I Hate New Music: The Classic Rock Manifesto, Never Fade Away: The Kurt Cobain Story, and Smoke on the Water. He lives in Newark, Delaware.
