#64 – Kimberley Rew of Katrina & the Waves – A Can of Bees and Underwater Moonlight Rereleases

Kimberley Rew

Kimberley Rew is probably best known for writing “Walking on Sunshine,” the 1985 smash for Katrina & the Waves.  While a member of that band, he also penned “Going Down to Liverpool,” later covered by the Bangles.  But before his hit-making success, Rew played guitar in the seminal alternative band the Soft Boys along with Robyn Hitchcock, who had a big impact on bands like REM.  Yep Roc Records has just released that influential band’s first two albums, A Can of Bees and Underwater Moonlight, with additional bonus tracks.
