Sparks - Tryouts For The Human Race

No posts for a couple of days as I'm away for the weekend, so here's your third and final tune for Friday...

My favourite Sparks tune, which I've never seen them play live. Boo! They're always good value though, funny as fuck and a great show to boot. Last time I saw them was at the Connect festival and dancing behind us was none other than Sylvester McCoy! Was desperate to go to the 'No1 In Heaven' show at their recent run of playing-all-their-albums at the Roundhouse but just didn't get it together in time.

There is a superb TOTP performance of it on YouTube - check it out. Can you believe that this is from 1979? Moroder-tastic indeed!
