Let There Be Music

According to iTunes I listed to more Prefab Sprout than any other band. As a result this has been an exciting week as Monday saw the release of a new album by the elusive North East band, now consisting only of founder and resident genius Paddy McAloon.

Lets Change The World With Music was written and recorded in 1992, and sat for the last 17 years in the legendary McAloon archives alongside other long lost (and possibly apocryphal) unreleased albums. Calum Malcolm has worked his magic on the demo tapes which sound surprisingly fully-realised in their released form. I’ve been listening to it for the last couple of days, and it’s great.

UPDATEAn interesting interview with Paddy McAloon, by Neil McCormick for the Telegraph.
