Prefab Sprout

Steve McQueen - Half Speed Master Edition

    Off the back of the incredible latest album ‘I Trawl The Megahertz‘, and following last month’s first hit of remastered vinyl, Prefab Sprout have announced an exciting next batch, featuring four of the band’s classic albums - out October 25th - all overseen by Paddy and Martin McAloon. The releases include Prefab Sprout’s renowned hit album ‘Steve McQueen’ - this time arriving as a ½ speed remaster from the original tapes and follows its 2007 ‘legacy edition’ release. An album that frequently graces critics’ “all time best” lists, it’s a record that is highly-revered. The BBC labelled it as “one of the greats. What really matters is the music. Really. If you have never listened to this album then I urge, no, demand that you do.” The releases include Prefab Sprout’s fourth studio album ‘Protest Songs’ - an essential release for the band that secured them a UK Top 20 record, as well as their sixth album ‘Andromeda Heights’, that spawned singles ‘A Prisoner Of The Past’ & ‘Electric Guitars’ and comes on 180g black vinyl for the very first time. Finally, the fourth part in the latest batch is the band’s newly mastered and remastered release of 2009’s ‘Let’s Change The World With Music’ - seen widely as the band’s comeback album, which received critical acclaim. Promo & marketing activity.

          I Trawl The Megahertz

            Conceived and recorded after Paddy was diagnosed with a medical condition that seriously affected his vision, the album is a testament to the healing power of music.

            Remastered and complete with new artwork and liner notes from Paddy himself.

            STAFF COMMENTS

            David says: The year is 1999 and Prefab Sprout main man, Paddy McAloon, finds himself nearly blind after surgery to reattach his retinas. Unable to either write songs or read, he spends his time listening to short-wave radio, recording snippets from the phone-ins and documentaries that will engender ‘I Trawl The Megahertz’.
            When it came out in 2003 Paddy, now fully recovered, had decided it was too personal a piece of work to be released under the Prefab Sprout moniker. Worried that an audience expecting a follow up to ‘Cars And Girls’ might be a little nonplussed by his new direction, it appeared as a solo album. Like cotton in a blizzard the record scattered into the ether and was, for the most part, largely forgotten.
            Not only is ‘I Trawl The Megahertz’ entirely unlike anything recorded by Prefab Sprout, it’s unlike anything recorded in pop. The record’s otherworldly mixture of samples and soaring, Debussy inspired classical interludes has more in common with one of those epic, old Hollywood films that you’d watch for hours on a rainy Sunday afternoon than anything you might hear on the radio, either then or now.
