Since storming into the charts, minds and airwaves in 1974 with ‘This Town Ain’t Big Enough For Both of Us’ from their 3rd album ‘Kimono My House’, the musically vital pop pioneers have created a unique legacy both on record and in their live performances. ‘A Steady Drip, Drip, Drip’ follows Sparks’ 2017 album ‘Hippopotamus’, an extraordinary record which saw them return to the Top 10 and was universally acclaimed with many critics declaring it to be one of the finest albums of the year and the pinnacle of the band’s career – until now.
‘A Steady Drip, Drip, Drip’ will be available on multiple formats including CD, picture disc, and cassette.

Tickets £12 + Booking Fee
Glasgow born singer/songwriter, Joesef is pleased to announce a headline Belfast show at Voodoo on Sunday 19th April 2020. His debut EP ‘Play me something nice’ is out now. Tickets on sale Friday January 31st 2020 at 10am from www.ticketmaster.ie, www.
The elusive, soulful musician comes from Glasgow and records his music in his bedroom.
The record navigates feelings of first love and loss or, as Joesef, puts it, the breakdown of his first relationship, “and how complicated it became for both of us trying to navigate through life without each other.”
He adds, “it’s about a sort of nostalgia and love that continues to linger after the dust has settled.”
The title track itself “is about being lonely and seeking comfort in the familiarity of each other even though everything has fallen apart.”
