The Joint: Let me in your pub. I’m not looking for trouble, I’m looking for love.

Two weeks ago we made a bold claim that “Summer of Soul” was the best music documentary we’ve seen in years.

“The Sparks Brothers”, directed by Edgar Wright, might run it close though. At 2 hours and 20 minutes long it provides an exhaustive account of the Ron and Russell’s 50 year career.

Here Edgar Wright talks about his life – from child to auteur – in terms of the music he listened to. There’s a heavy debt to 70’s K-Tel and Ronco compilations.

And if you were expecting a Sparks laden playlist on the back of all that you are going to be disappointed. Not a Mael tune in sight. You’ll have to go back to a Joint from 4 years ago instead.

But on with today’s show…
