Sparks of Genius

Posted on October 9, 2006


Last week was a bit of a gig fest. Wednesday saw us tripping along to Juliette and The Licks And Friday saw me hanging around in Edinburgh after the last day of a training course to catch our friend Cornelius and his new band, The Rohypsters, who turned out, as stated in their manifesto, to be “Fuckin’ nails!”. Quality.But sandwiched in between those two events was Thursday night’s jaunt to see the mighty Sparks.Second time we’ve seen them this year, and they consistently provide 100% entertainment. Absolute genius. And it was Russell’s birthday, and we got told off by Ron for singing happy birthday and spoiling the surprise. And when Ron Mael tells you off, you stay told off!
