^ That's exactly a scene from the Sparks Brothers movie which was the reason for this topic

It's part of the docummentary when Vince Cklarke talks about the aesthetic of PSB. For him, it's a copy and paste of the Sparks Brothers.

Wow I never known The Sparks except for their single MY WAY, which is a copy of the PSB sound and for that I like it a lot then and now but seeing the documentary its plain clear Neil and Chris adopted their aesthetic, if you see their first tv appearances you see they are still not formed in their role, I guess they saw themselves on tv and felt ashamed then quickly look for some role to adopt.
I dont really like any other song from Sparks and I can sing you any PSB b-side you name but what is real is real and they took their aesthetic from the Sparks.
The thing about Neil saying to their tour manager "You are naughty" and walking away says more bad things than good about themselves.
DONT EVER MEET YOUR HEROES !!
