So basically what happened was I was listening to Bookworm the other day and heard about this band I've never heard about before, not one word, not even a Family Guy reference, in my 27 years. After listening to some of their songs online I've been thinking, What a curious choice for one's all-time favorite band. But that's cool. In other news, I learned in a Believer interview I read yesterday that Ashbery digs Bukowski. He didn't say digs, but that was the gist. But anyway how did Sparks escape my detection all these years? I had no idea such a huge gap in my pop culture awareness existed. I'd've thought I'd've heard of anything that's ever been on VHfreaking1 forcryingoutloud. I'm not really upset, I'm just coffee.
Um, I hope you plan on clicking 'play' on the above video, if you haven't already.
You did, right? ... Don't read this blog again until you have. Thank you. Listen to it a couple times so that you won't be able to get it out of your head all day.
