Sparks - Exotic Creatures Of The Deep (2008)

Sparks 21st studio album Exotic Creatures Of The Deep was released on the 19th of May. Since 1994's Gratuitous Sax & Senseless Violins Sparks have been turning in some of the best albums of their careers. Their new album is no exception.Loads of fabulous new tracks,with Good Morning, Let the Monkey Drive, (She Got Me) Pregnant, being 3 of my favourites.
Darren Harvey on Music OHM said " Even when they're treading water Sparks still cut it better than most bands half their age."

I think they were touring up my neck of the woods the other week. I thought they were dead or something so it was a bit of a shock.

Hitler's son hasn't changed.

I'm looking forward to hearing "Exotic Creatures of the Deep". Sparks performed "This Town Ain't Big Enough For Both of Us" at the end of "The Culture Show", last week, so, if you missed it and would like to see it, it's available on iPlayer till Friday!

I know Sparks played a big set of concerts in London recently covering all their albums.
