A recording of this concert exists. Decent audience tape, fair bit of crowd chatter.

“I went to see Prefab Sprout on Monday 18th November 1985 with Joe who got me into the band and we had a good evening although I remember thinking ‘why is it so loud? I can’t hear what he’s singing. Why are they playing all the songs so fast? It sounds much better on the records’ and that’s still pretty much the way I feel about most gigs to this day.”

Adam Buxton
