Steve McQueen also known as Two Wheels Good is the brainchild of Prefab Sprout’s frontman/songwriter Paddy McAloon and producer Thomas Dolby. The story goes that after hearing that Dolby was a fan of their music, McAloon sent the producer a “trove of some 40 to 50 demos,” which were then carefully whittled down, directed, and orchestrated to the resulting essential 80’s masterpiece we hear today. The record consists of mostly nostalgic love songs tangled with obtuse metaphors and a sprinkle of sarcasm. On the A side you’ll find the hits, with the B side leaving itself to be more of a slow burner.
