Warwick University: October 31st, 1985

“Prefab Sprout are, by contrast, in the early stages of their career. Paddy McAloon is a fine songwriter, but hasn’t yet got the hits that audiences know for themselves. The and still has to work for their response, and in Coventry on Thursday (when Wendy Smith was missing from the lineup), they didn’t get it. The band played impeccably, but early on McAloon decided, rightly, that this was just another gig to get through.” Simon Frith
