Sparks is an American Art Rock band formed 1972 in Los Angeles by brothers Ron and Russell Mael. Originally called Halfnelson, they changed names after the release of their first album. They are noted for Russell's distinctive falsetto voice and Ron's keyboard playing style with minimal bodily movement. Sparks' sound has always been very much their own, spanning rock, pop, disco and orchestral, always with their highly stylised arrangements and quirky lyrics. They collaborated with Giorgio Moroder to record the excellent No.1 in Heaven, and with Franz Ferdinand on the not altogether successful FFS project. Outstanding albums include Kimono My House, Propaganda, Indiscreet, No.1 in Heaven and Lil' Beethoven.
