Prefab Sprout

They seem like a love em or hate em band.

I think they are some of the best sounding records of their time.
Did T Dolby have a lot to do with the mixing or was TWG your baby?

Could you share some stuff about the sound of that record please?

Thomas was very involved and we had a thoroughly good time. We worked on "Two wheels good" at a residential studio in England and just had fun. Thomas is very creative and I had worked on 2 of his solo albums and then we kind of hooked up and did a lot together.
We would do his records at Pete Townshend's studio in London ant Thomas would come to work each day by baot as Pete's studio is right on the river , then for lunch we would get in the baot and moor it at a pub and umm.....well.......not get too much more work done really !.
As for the sound...we just did the English thing , messed around the most unnatural way possible.!!
Prefab are so typically English in that the music does not translate to th U.S even remotely.
