Now Sparks Can Confuse Fans on the Big Screen
The musical brothers Ron and Russell Mael are known for catchy songs and perplexing shifts. But they longed to be in films. This summer they’re part of two.
Sparks is a band unlike any other. Ron and Russell Mael — the brothers who have made up the eccentric, unclassifiable duo for more than 50 years — have played a pivotal, if unheralded, role in multiple musical movements, from glam rock to new wave to synth-pop.

Their witty, hyper-literate songs, along with the singer Russell’s good looks and keyboardist Ron’s deadpan, glowering stage presence, made Sparks icons of a sort in Europe, but never more than a cult band in the United States. With 25 albums to their name, they have often followed up their biggest moments with radical shifts in style that thrilled loyal fans but baffled more casual listeners.

In 2017, the music-obsessed director Edgar Wright, fresh off the success of “Baby Driver,” went to see Sparks perform in Los Angeles. For years, he had been telling his friends that someone needed to make a documentary about the group, and as he looked at the audience, which ranged from teenagers to graying 60-somethings, and the weird mix of celebrities in attendance, he insistently repeated the idea to his friend, the filmmaker Phil Lord — who told him to make the movie himself.

Restrung (2014)


He had always considered making guitars a passion, not an occupation, but in 2007, Randall Wyn Fullmer, an ordinary guy with a cat, turned his lifelong hobby into a full-out obsession. To launch on this adventure, he did what anyone else would do - he quit his high paying job at Disney, leaving behind a successful 20 year career. It seemed to make so much sense at the time! With Disney in the rear-view, Randall launched his self-proclaimed 'Mad Plan' and began crafting small-batch bass guitars full time. From a beginner's electrifying success to near break-down, this is a beautiful, honest and inspirational portrait of a passionate craftsperson who walked headlong into a foolhardy dream. This is a true tale of a life unwound and restrung.

Joe Zawinul's Erdzeit - 2008 - Austrian documentary (English subtitles)

This documentary features extremely rare and moving footage. It was filmed during Joe's last months on Earth, and it was aired in 2008 on the Austrian TV.

is an excellent, full-hour song-by-song study by British documentary series Classic Albums with new, live-in-studio versions of songs from the album. Steely Dan's 1977 sixth studio album Aja is considered by many as one of, if not the greatest album of all-time.
 
I am a Classic Albums™ junkie; I have seen just about all of them.  AXS plays all of these British music documentaries and I say bring it on.  Yea Aja's alright, if you consider one of the best albums of all time alright; then yea.

Found this out of the blue; no promotion; comments disabled.   There are many artist from what I consider the Golden Age of all types of music 1960-circa 80 who I have rediscovered sometimes after 3 or 4 trips around so to speak and some that I completely got wrong based on limited knowledge.  The Kinks are one such band:

Fantastic!

The guy's a true Guru (is or will be). 

Incorporating realism as an art form, and a way of life... yet always humble. The rest is hard to express. ~ Better watch it, y'all.

So grateful to watch this.

For sharing ~ Thanks in Biggies...

That should be interesting.  I got into that band when I was in middle school and as people in that preview state - I know very little about them.  They have had enormous influence on so many other artists but few people have even heard of them.  They were much bigger in the UK than they were in the US though.
