I only got into them because they were playing Electric Picnic and I had never heard of them before.
I think ive said it before on here but I am OBSESSED with their Stevie Wonder cover - taking one of the most famous livest of live hits that has ever existed and turning it into a robotic mechanical monster
Like everything Sparks its not entirely serious but its not exactly taking the piss either. I don't even know if you can say its any good but, oh man, when the ludicrous metal guitar starts playing near the end... Lololol
Was wondering what was going on there, this clarfifies it. My tape didn't have that on it.
Angel Dust is a magnificent record. Dynamics all over the place, gets under your skin constantly, cathartic, funny, everyone playing was probaby enough to make one decent band on their talent alone. Like to listen to something like 'king for a day', or introduce someone to it and be like 'this isn't their intense stuff, you need to hear angel dust' and then you realise king for a day is better than anything most bands ever did in their careers. Kinda mad that in some ways, its a debut album.
I've dusted off The Real Thing due to the FNM bashing here to give it a reappraisal.
Rap and faux operatic vocals over metal chugga riffage, airy synths and slap bass - what's not to like (don't answer)? It has dated horribly, and is fantastic.
angel dust, just in some ways. The music was written for TRT when he joined so he was kinda in as a singer over stuff that was largely already done - AD was the first time that lineup did something together.
Got ya. I was thinking King For A Day was such a departure that you might have been eyeing that as the almost debut. So could have been either.
