Sparks - In Outer Space Colored Import Vinyl LP
Sparks In Outer Space Colored Import Vinyl LP
Sparks is an American pop and rock band formed in Los Angeles in 1972 by brothers Ron (keyboards) and Russell Mael (vocals). The duo formed in 1968 under the name Halfnelson. Known for their quirky approach to songwriting, Sparks' music is often accompanied by intelligent, sophisticated, and acerbic lyrics, and an idiosyncratic, theatrical stage presence, typified in the contrast between Russell's animated, hyperactive frontman antics and Ron's deadpan scowling. They are also noted for Russell Mael's distinctive wide-ranging voice and Ron Mael's intricate and rhythmic keyboard playing style.
While achieving chart success in various countries around the world including the United Kingdom, Germany, France, Italy, and the United States, they have enjoyed a cult following since their first releases. During the late 1970s, when in collaboration with Giorgio Moroder (and Telex subsequently), Sparks reinvented themselves as a new wave/synth-pop band, and abandoned the traditional rock band line-up. Their frequently changing styles and visual presentations have kept the band at the forefront of modern, artful pop music.
The twelfth studio album from American synth-pop pioneers, Sparks. The group defined the synth duo format and were subsequently followed by notable acts such as Erasure, Pet Shop Boys, Bronski Beat and many more. Originally released in 1983, In Outer Space became one of their most successful in the U.S. and features the singles 'Cool Places', 'All You Ever Think About Is Sex' and 'Please, Baby, Please'.
