It seems like an age since Sparky Deathcap supported Los Campesinos! on their UK tour, when in actual fact it was only about a month ago. Anyway, the man who is destined to be the eight member of the Internation Tweexcor Underground took time out before the show to have a chat with us about a few things – and he’s a very nice man. Not only did he charm us with his tales of disliking Crystal Castles, but he also treated us with a copy of his Tear Jerky EP and one of his brilliant ‘zines.
The Line of Best Fit are running the interview, so go over there to get it:

If you’ve not experienced the excellence of Sparky Deathcap then now’s probably the right time to start. Lyrically, there are few that surpass him, as the demo for Berlin Syndrome (downloadable below) show. There’s also Mountain and Central, taken from his limited-release debut album, which was haqndmade by some brilliant French label that I can’t remember the name of:
