Prefab Sprout - Sounds like instant vegetables

Prefab Sprout band name origin - Brussel SproutsPop rock and sophisti-pop flavour the works of this formation from Witton Gilbert, that did well in particular in the 80 's of the last century. 

The band name has the smell of what is so aptly described as misheard lyrics (examples: see

The lead singer of Prefab Sprout, Paddy McAloon, supposedly was listening to a song called Jackson by Nancy Sinatra, and heard: 

'We got married in a fever
Hotter than a prefab sprout.' 

Instead of prefab however, Nancy sings of pepper or peppered.

We do take Paddy’s point though: a chili is much less interesting than prefabricated Brussels sprouts.

Active: 1978-present, GBR
