Some new photographs from Lund Sweden, taken by Hans Bedroth in December 1974, are being posted in the Indiscreet group on Facebook. They are great photos and I hope they don’t mind if I share them here!
Morrissey describing Sparks in his Autobiography
Morrissey used the word ‘tough’ to describe Sparks. Interesting.
When I saw Ron Mael live, tough was the first word that came to mind.
During the encore tonight, Ron grabbed a broom and started sweeping up.
Ron is so ordinary in such a unique fashion.
Without Using Hands (the 5th Sparks album Indiscreet was released in October 1975)
So I guess this douchenugget was whining on Sparks Official's facebook page about how they're requesting no photography/video at their shows, and apparently said douchenugget decided not to buy a ticket for that reason alone.
Well, the admin handed his ass back to him. Beautifully, I might add.
When the bros were playing in Seattle I managed to sneak a few pics but
1) I turned the flash off because I didn’t want to be an asshole
2) Had it been specified that these things were NOT allowed, I would have followed that, no questions asked
3) The memories from that night aren’t encapsulated in the shitty mobile phone pics I took because seeing the whole show in person, front row, and all that followed completely surpass any digital reminder whatsoever
Anyway, moral of the story, show some fucking respect. These guys are busting their asses to show you a good time, and if you’re an ungrateful turd, you’re not welcome there anyway. They’ve been recording, performing, reinventing, and basking in their awesomeness for over 40 years. What have you accomplished? Being a little bitch on facebook, apparently.
