Or definitely not ENOUGH people have, but acclaimed director Edgar Wright (Shaun Of The Dead, Hot Fuzz) is turning his hand to documentaries in order to shine a brighter light on this duo of musical geniuses.

Some of the biggest and best artists in the world of music regularly list The Sparks Brothers as both the most influential and most unsung musicians in history.

On top of the list of guests above, the documentary features members of some of the biggest bands in the world, including the Red Hot Chilli Peppers, Duran Duran, Erasure, Sonic Youth, Franz Ferdinand, New Order, The Human League and LOADS more.

Wright also sits down with the duo themselves to discuss their TWENTY-FIVE album long career to date, whether they're aware of the cultural impact they've had, and why they aren't as famous as they probably deserve to be.

The Sparks Brothers is currently scheduled to arrive in Irish cinemas on Thursday, 29 July.
