Ron and Russell Mael are the brotherly spark plugs of Sparks, who come from California but created their biggest impact when they arrived in England in 1974. Russell was the younger half of the duo, who sang in a manic falsetto while Ron played keyboards and sported a Charlie Chaplin style mustache.
Produced by German Reinhold Mack (ELO, Queen), 1982's Angst In My Pants served as the duo's eleventh album and was hailed by author Daryl Easlea in his 2009 biography (Talent Is An Asset: The Story Of Sparks) as "their best LP from the eighties." A Billboard Top 200 album, Rolling Stone stated that "Angst was more fun than a case of domestic champagne...positively effervescent with Europop fizz and California folly." Includes the breakthrough US single "I Predict," their biggest US hit to that date at No. 60.
An accompanying CD features three bonus tracks including "Modesty Plays," a hard-to-find song, written as the theme music for a US television show.
