Sparky's Flaw changes name to 'Parachute,' plays ball drop
At first, we thought Coran Capshaw may want to assemble his legal team. Trolling MySpace this morning, the Hook found a band that looks and sounds just like the Charlottesville band turned major label Capshaw client Sparky's Flaw, only they're called "Parachute." But after further investigation, it would appear that Sparky's Flaw is no more, and that the quintet from Charlottesville are now known by this new moniker. They also had the chance to recruit about a million more fans on New Year's Eve, playing on New Year's Eve just after 6pm in New York's Times Square on the "Nivea Countdown" stage along with platinum-selling rapper Ludacris, country-pop sensation Taylor Swift, and Disney teen idols the Jonas Brothers. How illustrious was the newly named band's company? The acts for which Parachute opened have sold a combined 4.3 million albums in only the last four months.
