Sparks

All white, all white, it's a fair cop but John's Children dunnit.It is 1973. Bronzed Californian showbiz twins troll over to the UK, replace their  colonial band with non-swimming British musicians and make an album. They get some hits and cunningly replace most of the new British band with more accommodating mole-lovers.  But to no avail, they are undone. When it all stops, they go back down the trans-Atlantic burrow and emerge once again on the other side. So there we are. Still want more essential mole-facts? OK, then:
