    My fave song of theirs is 'The Number One Song In Heaven'.
    I was hooked from the first time I heard those distant first notes of This Town on Radio Luxembourg via an earpiece (just the one) on a tinny little transistor radio. It was like a clarion call from the Home planet . But when I saw them on TOTP, oh wow! I've never been the same since

    LOVE The Number One Song In Heaven.

    Sublime track.

    How can you say such a thing Andy! Ron has a very expressive face. I've changed my pic for you to one of me giving him a kiss (with prior permission). Just you look at his face and try telling me it isn't the personification of enthusiasm .

    Got my hands on a copy of Kimono My House on cd the other day, hadn't heard it since listening to my brothers vinyl copy in the 70's, a great album!

    Amazing that Kimono My House costs the same on ebay today as it did back in 74.

    No apology necessary Andy (note the smilies). The moustache got "streamlined for the 90s". Such a shame YouTube is pulling vids. I'd love to have put the David Lynch directed "I Predict" up for you to see. Ron as a seedy stripper - the sort of image that burns itself into your memory and refuses to leave

    I've got a best of that i bought purely for Beat the clock and No 1 song in heaven but after reading your post had a listen to Never turn your back on Mother earth. Very good track. I might have to give the rest of the album a listen now.

    I didn't realise "No 1 in Heaven" was a Sparks tune!
    I've heard it loads of times.
    Definately Hot Gossips' best dance on The Kenny Everret Show!
