Ένα από τα πιο αγαπημένα μου ροκ γκρουπ όλων των εποχών είναι οι Sparks, με άλλα λόγια οι αδελφοί Ron & Russel Mael [οργανίστας-συνθέτης και τραγουδιστής αντίστοιχα]. Το εντελώς προσωπικό art pop ιδίωμά τους δεν είχε την αναγνώριση που είχαν “παρεμφερή” acts όπως οι Roxy ή ο Bowie, αν και, στις κορυφαίες στιγμές τους συναγωνίζονται τις αντίστοιχες εκείνων. Πρόσθετο ενδιαφέρον στοιχείο είναι το ότι σε πείσμα ενός καθαρόαιμα βρετανικού ήχου οι αδελφοί Mael έρχονται από το L.A..

One of my favorite rock bands of all times are Sparks, in other words, brothers Ron & Russel Mael [organist-composer and singer respectively]. Their completely personal art pop idiom did not receive the recognition of “similar” acts like Roxy or Bowie, though, in their top moments, they compete with their respective ones. An additional interesting element is that, in spite of a ‘genuine’ British sound, the Maels come from L.A.

More about these reblogs

Lately I have been rebloging music videos from Oannes new blog. For my friends who didn’t know, or wonder why…. Oannes [aka Socratis Papahatzis] is my husband, partner in life and music and the one with my undying admiration. Together we have a band MK-O [the music of Marina Kanavaki & Oannes]. So, it’s my pleasure to share with you his [and mine] musical selections. Although here I reblog mainly his musical selections, he writes exceptional articles on various topics [some may need translation], so do visit his site. He has my highest recommendation!

  1. They should have won a Grammy for Best Album Title That’s Also a Pun (“Kimono My House”). But when it comes to music that generates “sparks,” I prefer MK-O and their Olympian art pop idiom. 🎹🎤🎶💥💥💥💥💥💥💥💥💥💥💥💥🚀🌖💥🚑👽👽👽👽👽👽👽👽👽👽👽👽👽👽👽🍨🍨🍨🍨🍨🍨🍨🍨🍨🍨🍨🍨🍨🍨🍨🍨🍨🍨😋👍😊
