In the 1970s Hilly Michaels was an occasional drummer for Sparks, which was a closed shop for the Brothers Mael in terms of songwriting. By 1980, Michaels had enough songs saved up to make this debut album for Warner Bros. To an 8-year-old me in 1980, this would have been the most awesome thing possible, if I’d known about it at the time. Now that I finally own it, I say: Fuck the 8-year-old me, this is the most awesome thing of all time ever.
