Sparks 'Gratuitous Sax and Senseless Violins' LP
Available as: standard LP or deluxe edition on limited coloured LP with 2xCD.
Originally released in November 1994 following an unprecedented 6 year hiatus, Gratuitous Sax and Senseless Violins marked a return to the commercial success that had alluded the band for much of the 80s. Delivering some of their highest chart positions in 15 years and the now fan favourite single, When Do I Get To Sing “My Way”. Their matchless flair for the avant garde and contemporary experimental ever present, Gratuitous Sax and Senseless Violins presented another reinvention in sound and style so typical of Sparks’s uniquely extra-ordinary career.
Gratuitous Sax and Senseless Violins is now reissued, for the first time, as a deluxe edition to coincide with the 25th anniversary of the original release. Compiled, curated and designed by Ron and Russell Mael. All formats feature the original album remastered. Expanded editions include b-sides, live tracks and remixes from the likes of Bernard Butler and Vince Clarke. The release also features a further 12 unreleased demos and 5 unheard tracks from the never released Christi Haydon EP. Plus special sleeve notes by Ron and Russell Mael.
