Brothers Ron and Russell Mael grew up in Los Angeles in the 60s, and were obsessed with rock and roll and pop culture. In 1968 the pair decided to form a band. They originally called themselves Halfnelson and signed with Bearsville Records and got Todd Rundgren to produce their debut album which flopped. A name change was agreed and their label suggested Sparks Brothers. From there it was a short edit to arrive at Sparks. Their debut was repackaged and re-released and sold roughly the same, though the single Wonder Girl did get airplay in Los Angeles. A second album followed causing even more subdued enthusiasm.
