The Soft Boys – Underwater Moonlight
Often cited as an album that launched a thousand others, somehow The Soft Boys’ masterful swan song still seems to evade a majority of listeners. Despite being reissued several times in the last
thirty years, the album remains more of a critic’s darling and oft name-checked influence than an essential part of most listeners’ collections. Recorded after yet another lineup change in Robyn Hitchcock’s seminal group, the album proved to be the last they’d ever record under the name and yet its update of jangled 60’s melodies with a touch of punk sneer proved to catch hold of a burgeoning college-rock underground. With R.E.M., The Replacements and quite a few other bands of the next few years citing the album as an influence, it becomes evident that despite its lack of commercial success at the time it was something of a hit in its own right. Reissued again on its old home at Yep Roc Records.
