Past Tense is a brand new Best Of collection featuring all of Sparks hits and best loved recordings across their impressive 50-year career.
The package includes a very rare early recording of Computer Girl (1967) and a previously unheard / unreleased original version of Piss Off (2004) which would latterly be recorded with Franz Ferdinand and appear on their 2015 collaboration record FFS. The collection also features Check Out Time 11am (2017), previously only available on a limited 7" Black Friday release.
This 3LP format includes Islington N1 (2008), previously unreleased and only heard by golden ticket holders at the Sparks Spectacular show in Islington, London.
