"I listened yesterday. It's no reflection on you but I could'nt see where you were going or what you were going for. This early seventies thing did'nt get noticed the first time and you talk about friends of like Dealney and Bonnie who had records out like we're supposed to remember who they are. Then you play this long winded free jazz stuff that really grates on my nerves. And that noise without a beat and sounds like someones being pinched. Then you play a reggae song, I think you called it Dub, to what, be cool? You seem to really fetishize the whole folk thing too which is obnoxious to us who don't even care. I liked it when you played that punk song though. I like Joe Belock a lot." (Visit homepage.)

Great interview with Russell, luckily a US Sparks fan posted a link to your programme. Glad it was not a rushed affair. How exciting a show of the new album would be. Thank you for the interview.

What an affable and open-minded, witty guy Russell Mael proves to be in this excellent interview I listened to all the way from Bandung, Indonesia. I'll send this link to the Mael Bros' MySpace site for all the fans around the world to enjoy. Thank you so much, mellifluous Russell and perceptive John!

Enjoyed your interview with Russell Mael. Made for a fun-filled and informative listen. Longtime SPARKS fans here in this camp... Seen 'em perform many moons ago at Avery Fisher Hall (Kimono My House era). And a few years back at Central Park... Thanks for doing the interview on WFMU...
