Prefab Sprout is the best band ever and Paddy McAloon is a genius. Just in case anyone's confused. However, Paddy's supreme songsmithery is sometimes hampered by substandard/corny production, particularly when Thomas Dolby is absent. "Nightingales" is a prime example: a sublime piece of songwriting drenched in a schmaltzy 80's arrangement. There's always been an element of earnest cheese in Paddy's songs, and he usually gets away with it because he's so talented, but he's really stretching the limits here. This single offers an extended mix of the album version, and as usual in the world of pop music, "extended" means "longer, duller and with more pointless instrumental bits". As for the "demo tapes" on the B side, "Life of Surprises" is actually identical to the version which was released the year after on the "Protest Songs" album and then finally as a single in 1993 (the latter was backed with two cool FSOL remixes of "If You Don't Love Me", which make it well worth picking up). "King Of Rock 'N' Roll" - that infamous novelty song with its ridiculous video and the chorus that goes "hot dog, jumping frog, Albuquerque" - remains Prefab Sprout's biggest hit to date, a fact that McAloon himself has apparently never quite managed to get his head around. The version here is as silly and throwaway as the one that charted, yet less listenable. On to the hidden beauty on this EP: "Bearpark", which is unavailable anywhere else. It's certainly the most basic-sounding demo of the bunch, recorded on a cassette player and accompanied by the cheapest drum machine track imagineable. Says Paddy in the liner notes: "I felt like Phil Spector when I'd finished it". But somehow this unvarnished simplicity suits the song perfectly. Bearpark is a small village in County Durham in the north-east of England, close to where Paddy grew up, and this is a tribute to the place, but to me it's just a simple, bittersweet and beautiful little song about homesickness and nostalgia which really could be about anywhere. (Well, perhaps with the exception of the line "hard as nails Geordies"...) Another proof that a true gem doesn't necessarily need polishing.
