Sparks – The Artist/s

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, they have enjoyed a cult following since their first releases. During the late 1970s, when in collaboration with Giorgio Moroder, 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.

Lost And Found – The Song

‘Lost And Found’ is a song written by Ron Mael of the American pop group Sparks. It is the B-side of their single  Amateur Hour taken from their 1974 album Kimono My House which was considered to be their commercial break. The single, Lost and Found was not included on the original release of the album but appeared on subsequent CD reissues. Lyrically the song is about a man on finding a lost wallet should  not feel bad keeping it and its contents since the owner was wealthy and could probaly afford the loss.

The Lost Glove and Umbrella – The Shape

This record is modelled into a single glove and umbrella being one of the most commonly items that are lost and found on British transport.
