We interviewed Jim Ward last November at Richards on Richards before their big break out with their new album Threes. Quick, brief intro: He’s one of 4 band members in Sparta and since then have played Conan, Craig Ferguson, done so many events and toured across North America. I was just listening to the radio and they were interviewed on the 6 o’clock rock report – man, our interview was SO much better hehe (it’s all about being organic and grassroots eh, Dave!).
Their first single was “Taking Back Control” and one of my favourite tracks (that they’re playing on the radio right now) is “Erase it Again”. They kick ass and they’re back in town tonight at the Commodore – go get your ticket!
Update: Doors @ 8:00pm, Attack in Black @ 9:00pm, Moneen about 10:00pm and Sparta from around 11:30pm – 1:00am.
Update: FANTASTIC time thanks to Ed, the tour manager, Keeley of Sparta, and the staff at the Commodore, not to mention the entire band – what an awesome show 🙂 Pics will be up on Flickr shortly, tag: sparta
