Fun with Ron and Russell Mael, interviewed by Julie Brown on Music Box in 1985. Ron (as one commentator notes) is particularly “perky,” perhaps due to the excellent review in Sounds that claimed he was a better song-writer than Lennon and McCartney. Ron disagrees, but admits he is maybe a better song-writer than George Harrison.
Canale di dilloacami who posted this interview has a great selection of Sparks clips, which are well worth checking out. In particular this rather strange TV interview set in “Ray’s Supermarket.”
Bonus—comic strip on Sparks from Judy magazine. Via Old School Sparks
