    I know about 91,2% of this board probably couldn't give a shit but I know there's a couple of fans and "Child of The Eighties" and their cover of "Run With Us" got some attention on the front page.

    Well it seems they're making a new album which is quite exciting for those who like their slightly nilhistic dance-pop to the power of 10.

    I also just found on their facebook page (around christmas time) a free download of some covers including "Don't Go" (Yazoo), You Spin Me Round, All The Small Things, Poison (Alice Cooper). My favourites being "I Was Made For Loving You" and "The Highwayman" which is particularly beautiful especially the 12 inch version which includes bits of "Goodbye Mr Chips". http://www.facebook.com/spraynet

    For those who don't know them they've had two albums (available on Spotify) and a few eps. Here's some samples of their work.

    "Child Of The Eighties" http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1jP4aiHZZoM
    "I am Gothic" http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b2uk0-8NMEg
    "Run With Us" http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zYFe8IiGvl0
    "He Came With The Frame" http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9gfF4CgzDQ4
    "Twitter Campaign" http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ojOXo1tbc9s
    "Everything's Better With The Muppets" http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SBz46xC5t7E
     
  2. I am genuinely surprised to hear that they are still going. I loved "Run With Us" - in fact, I still do - and never would have thought they were going to stick around for another 7 (6?) years.

    It's weird. I never know they were still going until I stumbled upon "Everything's Better With The Muppets". In fact I never know they had two whole albums... I just thought they were a handful of tracks.

    And here's their cover of "The Highway Man". It's really lovely.
     
  4. So obviously hardly anyone cares about them here, but they just put a link to a new song on facebook:

    ("Sparks Called and They Want Their Ideas Back" is the title)

    I like it.

    I care.

    I don't know what's sadder, that only 2 people here care about Spray anymore... or that only about another 2 know who Sparks are.
     
  6. Yes, it's such a shame. They are not even far away from what is usually popular on Popjustice and if I remember correctly "Run With Us" was appreciated highly back then on here. Oh well.
