God, "Underwater Moonlight" is foolish. Hugely influential group. What punk rock learned from the Byrds.

The Soft Boys, and the subsequently-launched solo career of singer/songwriter Robyn Hitchcock, never acheived the level of popular fame it deserved, but among songwriters, was extremely influential. A generation of alternative bands, beginning with no less than REM, cite the Soft Boys & Hitchcock as an influence.

Really solid band. "Underwater Moonlight" is an essentially flawless album. Robyn Hitchcock later embarked on a successful solo career.

Tahvo - I voted for "Underwater Moonlight" once in the Album Project to no response. I'm still supportive of it if if you're interested.
