one month passes...

New Megahertz is somehow different to the old I’m reading? Anyone heard it yet? It’s on Spotify I notice...

piscesx, Tuesday, 12 February 2019 14:33 (seven months ago) link

Can’t say I noticed any significant difference. I have the original cd, but some time since I played it. Think I’ll need to investigate

I've only just discovered this group for myself via an '80s compilation CD collection I purchased the last time I was in London (i.e. December 2017). So far the two Prefab Sprout songs on said album ("The King of Rock and Roll" and "When Love Breaks Down") are really, really fucking amazing. Next up: actually listening to one of their full albums. BTW, I have a very dear friend of mine who's a native of Albuquerque and now I can't help but associate her with the former song, even though we met via a shared fandom of a completely different musical artist.

Looks like that’s been removed; shame.

Tim, Wednesday, 20 February 2019 13:08 (six months ago) link

Looks like that's back; hooray!

Your daddy loves you very much. He just doesn't want to live with us anymore.

four months pass...

vinyl reissues in september:

Prefab Sprout have announced vinyl reissues of three studio albums and one compilation. New pressings of their 1984 debut Swoon, 1988’s commercial breakthrough From Langley Park to Memphis, 1990’s double album Jordan: The Comeback, and 1992’s Life of Surprises: The Best of Prefab Sprout are all out September 27. A press statement notes that the packaging and remasters were overseen by band members Paddy and Martin McAloon. Pre-orders are available at their website.

Earlier this year, Paddy McAloon’s 2003 solo album I Trawl the Megahertz was reissued as a Prefab Sprout LP.

... i think i'm gonna need to buy jordan

american bradass (BradNelson), Wednesday, 3 July 2019 18:06 (two months ago) link

Interesting that they didn’t include Steve McQueen. I hope these stick around long enough for me to confirm the pressings are better than my originals.

brotherlovesdub, Wednesday, 3 July 2019 22:13 (two months ago) link

hope they fixed the glitch on life of surprises

Vapor waif (uptown churl), Thursday, 4 July 2019 00:31 (two months ago) link

What glitch?

Gerald McBoing-Boing, Thursday, 4 July 2019 02:18 (two months ago) link

sorry, i must be insane. i remember there being some weird glitch on a PS song, thought it was LoS, thought it was discussed on ilm as an error during mastering but re-listening i don't hear anything. apologies for derail

Vapor waif (uptown churl), Thursday, 4 July 2019 02:48 (two months ago) link

no, wait, it's there, around 3:38-41 on the word 'not' !

Vapor waif (uptown churl), Thursday, 4 July 2019 03:00 (two months ago) link

I've noticed that glitch too. Pretty weird oversight on their part, unless it was the only possible way for them to stitch it together. I hope that's even fixable at this point!

OneSecondBefore, Thursday, 4 July 2019 16:55 (two months ago) link

any news on femmes mythologiques?

Pagoda, Thursday, 4 July 2019 17:30 (two months ago) link

nothing beyond the planned release in September mentioned at the start of the year

ufo, Thursday, 4 July 2019 17:38 (two months ago) link

media is precious and fragile ... but despite the glitch LOS is still perfect

Vapor waif (uptown churl), Thursday, 4 July 2019 17:40 (two months ago) link

Trying to figure out why Steve McQueen (my fave of them, by far) was excluded, I found out there was a RSD release of 'Steve McQueen Acoustic'. Anyone heard it?

Uptown VONC (Le Bateau Ivre), Thursday, 4 July 2019 17:51 (two months ago) link

yeah, steve mcqueen is my favourite album of theirs :/

bookmarkflaglink (jim in vancouver), Thursday, 4 July 2019 17:53 (two months ago) link

The Steve McQueen acoustic was all bonus tracks on the 2006 reissue iir

ufo, Thursday, 4 July 2019 17:55 (two months ago) link

Ah, thanks. The lack of fanfare everywhere made me think already it wasn't something new.

Uptown VONC (Le Bateau Ivre), Thursday, 4 July 2019 17:57 (two months ago) link

love those acoustic versions.

Fizzles, Thursday, 4 July 2019 18:09 (two months ago) link

yes

is there a rights issue with the label that put out Steve McQueen / Two Wheels Good?

flappy bird, Thursday, 4 July 2019 20:44 (two months ago) link

I got to know Steve McQueen via the 2006 reissue so those acoustic versions are as canonical as the originals for me. I think I actually like them better

licorice oratorio (baaderonixx), Sunday, 7 July 2019 08:22 (two months ago) link

the Steve McQueen Acoustic disc appears to be on spotify, along with 5 different issues of Steve McQueen (including one of Two Wheels Good), each with a different poorly scanned version of the album art

ufo, Sunday, 7 July 2019 08:32 (two months ago) link

acoustic version was also issued as a stand alone lp.

one month passes...

Variants of this pop up about once every 8 months when there's a news story about prefabricated something. JUST SAY NO. https://t.co/88A7ESVs2X

So is there a release date for the new album?

McAloon has also indicated his vaults are rather vast.

How vast?

“You can work it out by doing the maths,” he went on to say. “…if you write three albums a year, approximately, and you’ve been doing that for 30 years, then that’s where we are.

damn, I really hope Paddy has a Max Brod in his life iykwim
