Prefab Sprout - I Trawl the Megahertz: Remastered Vinyl 2LP
Prefab Sprout I Trawl the Megahertz: Remastered Vinyl 2LP
Remastered and Presented as 180g Vinyl 2LP-Set with B-Side Etching and New Cover Art!
Prefab Sprout's I Trawl The Megahertz, originally a 2003 solo release from frontman Paddy McAloon, has been remastered and is being reissued as a fully fledged Prefab Sprout record. 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. Featuring new artwork and liner notes from Paddy himself, I Trawl The Megahertz is presented here as a double 180g vinyl LP set with a specially etched side 2.
The album is a predominantly instrumental and experimental release and is very different than any other Prefab Sprout album. After McAloon was rendered almost blind for a period in 1999 due to detached retinas, he was left housebound, and found comfort in listening to shortwave radio transmissions such as chat shows, phone-in programs and documentaries. He recorded conversations from these programs and fragmented them, adding in new words and lines from other sources, providing him source material for the album.
I Trawl the Megahertz features classical passages and orchestration reminiscent of Claude Debussy and Maurice Ravel, McAloon's two favorite composers. With themes of old memories and time passing, I Trawl the Megahertz is a highly personal work.
