Introducing Sparks

Most of the music produced today has its genealogy tracing back to three key years: 1977, 1979 and 1982.
Though I had heard of Sparks, I had never heard any of their music. They were quite underground. I only heard this for the first time last summer in Montreal. I was house-sitting for an Acadian woman with a very eclectic collection of vinyl albums. One of them was a Sparks album "No. 1 in Heaven".(1979) The most influential track is "My Other Voice". The bass line influenced Bauhaus and The Cure. Produced by electronic music pioneer Giorgio Moroder.
