Red Hot Chili Peppers bassist Flea, Beck and Jack Antonoff are among many artists featured in the new trailer for The Sparks Brothers, an upcoming documentary about the beloved cult band Sparks.

“Throughout all the years I’ve been making music, if you get on a tour bus with a bunch of musicians, eventually the conversation will go to Sparks,” Beck says in the clip.

“All pop music is rearranged Sparks,” Antonoff adds. “That’s the truth.”

Other artists featured in the doc include Todd Rundgren, Franz Ferdinand‘s Alex Kapranos, Jane Wiedlin of The Go-Go’s, Steve Jones of Sex Pistols and members of New Order. Franz Ferdinand, by the way, previously collaborated with Sparks as the band FFS.

The Sparks Brothers is directed by Shaun of the Dead and Scott Pilgrim vs. the World filmmaker Edgar Wright. It premieres in theaters June 18.
