Last night Reggie Chamberlain King and myself launched a new, occasional feature. The provisional title is 'Edge Of The Radar' but we welcome a better name. The premise is that it's fun to profile lesser-known acts that have made a real impression on the culture. And so we settled on Sparks to commence the project. Two brothers from California - one abstract and the other flamboyant - combining opera, cabaret, big guitars and polymorphous abandon. I think it worked, and the recent Sparks work, 'The Seduction Of Ingmar Bergman' was supreme. Any
suggestions for the next profile?
