Prefab Sprout: McAloony Tunes
Paul Lester, Melody Maker, 5 January 1991
Prefab Sprout's latest album, Jordan: The Comeback, was lavished with even more praise than their previous two classics, and their European dates are inspiring the kind of fandemonium normally reserved for mega-platinum stadium acts. So why is Paddy McAloon less than ecstatic right now? PAUL LESTER met the band in Paris, and discovered the gap between the Sprouts' immaculate fantasy-pop, and their Mondays-style on-the-road antics.
