Edgar Wright's documentary The Sparks Brothers is a tribute to the most influential band you've never heard of.

Edgar Wright's documentary The Sparks Brothers is a tribute to the most influential band you've never heard of

Yet outside of music heads and pop connoisseurs, LA art rockers Sparks – brothers Russell and Ron Mael – still feel relatively unknown to the wider world. "They're part of the musical ecosystem," says alt rock star Beck, one of the many talking heads gathered for director Edgar Wright's new documentary about the group. "They may have given birth to other bands that don't even know that the lineage goes back to them. " Wright, the British director behind Baby Driver, Shaun of the Dead and Scott Pilgrim vs the World, is nothing if not a fanboy, and The Sparks Brothers is a work of obvious enthusiasm – a film designed to enshrine its subjects in the pop culture hall of fame.

Sparks' brand of eccentric art pop was a peculiar proposition, even in the camped-up world of early-70s glam rock. In the Air Tonight's influence, intrigue, and THAT drum break that endures 40 years on. It takes three minutes and forty seconds before the signature moment arrives.

When the Spice Islands began to be forgotten, music became the Moluccans' last resort. It was once fought over by the Europeans for its abundance of nutmeg and cloves — giving it the nickname the "Spice Islands" — but the Indonesian province of Maluku has largely been forgotten this century.

When the Spice Islands began to be forgotten, music became the Moluccans' last resort

Maluku, anglicised as the Moluccas, is predominately populated by Melanesians and located in the middle of the broad and blurry Wallace Line, with West Papua its closest neighbour. It is made up of thousands of mostly tiny islands that are some of the least populated and developed in Indonesia. But despite its untouched beauty and palm-lined beaches, the remote province is rarely visited. Max Pattinama from the Provincial Tourism Office says the area has huge tourism potential, but the central government has left it behind. "Maluku is not included in the 10 priority tourism destinations, the new Bali, that the Indonesian government is creating now," he said.

And one way they could do that is through its thriving music scene. Music keeps the Moluccas alive.

If this music gives you goosebumps, you might have a special brain

If you’re having trouble, have a listen to this spine-tingling performance of ‘Lux Aeterna’, a vocal rendition of Elgar’s ‘Nimrod’, by Voces8: Did you feel chills, a lump in your throat, or perhaps a tingling sensation on the back of your neck? Then you might have a more unique brain than you think. A study, carried out by PHD student Matthew Sachs at the University of Southern California, has revealed that people who get chills from music might have structural differences in their brain. The research studied 20 students, who listened to three to five pieces of music. “[The ten who felt shivers] have a higher volume of fibres that connect their auditory cortex to the areas associated with emotional processing, which means the two areas communicate better,” Matthew told Neuroscience News.

Catharsis queen: how Billie Eilish became the voice of Gen Z – and the Grammys. Just before Billie Eilish won album of the year at the Grammys on Sunday night, she was caught on camera. “Please don’t be me, please,” she appeared to be saying, as if appalled by her own success. It had been an extraordinary evening. The 18-year-old whispery pop innovator swept all of the “big four” categories – album of the year, record of the year, song of the year and best new artist – with her debut album When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go?. The Top 20 Spaghetti Western Soundtracks - The Spaghetti Western Database. Earlier in 2017 we started a nominating process in which many members of our community suggested the best overall spaghetti westerns. It was a daunting challenge, as it is almost impossible to consider the music independently from the movies that made these tunes famous. It was a foregone conclusion therefore, that many soundtracks in the following list (the result of a further four week voting period) matches the Top 20 of films very closely.

To get an even better picture of the music that defined the genre of the Spaghetti Western so well and to give credit to the great composers and musicians, it was agreed that there would be an alternative top 20 compiled from among those that did not make this cut below.
