‘I Trawl The Megahertz’ was conceived and recorded after Paddy was diagnosed with a medical condition that seriously affected his vision. Not surprisingly the album is a testament to the healing power of music.
The album is comprised of nine compositions; the lengthy 22 minute title track, a series of shorter instrumental pieces and a couple of songs originally intended to accompany a short film.
The track ‘I’m 49’ is one of Paddy’s favourites featuring sampled voices. “Musically I like to think of it as Van McCoy on a downer,” Paddy says.
Though the record originally appeared as a solo album, it seems fitting to now classify it as a Prefab Sprout project. “I thought we could do anything”, Paddy says of those heady Prefab days. “And Megahertz is true to that spirit. The music here is of a piece with everything I’ve ever written. It’s from the heart.”
Esprit De Corps, Fall From Grace, Orchid 7… are some of the songs you could find at his amazing album. Enter the form below for a chance to win and get ready to enjoy Prefab Sprout ‘I Trawl The Megahertz’ album now.
