Just When We Need Paddy

Breaking his extended silence … Paddy McAloon. Regular readers of the blog will know that the music of Prefab Sprout and Paddy McAloon is very much up there as one of my favorite artists. As Paddy has suffered both sight and hearing problems, any music from him is a special gift, and the unexpected 2013 album Crimson/Red could have been seen as a swansong. But he is back with a Youtube video , and even if it is a one-off, the subject matter could hardly be more relevant in the strange post-2016 world. There is also a great write-up on the song and it’s  background on the Guardian.
