Kimberley Rew - My Baby Does Her Hairdo Long / Fishing 7" (1981)

For his second single, Kimberley Rew, now out of the Soft Boys, gathered a dream team for all those (I was) who were in the current pop trip: 3 quarters of the db's and Mitch Easter (Mr Let's Active). Strangely the songs are not so sparkling that we could have hoped but it's a fine couple and they are now rather cult, embodying all that was so naive, innocent and celestial in this first years of the eighties (things would soon turn sour). Strangely, he won't try a solo career but would form The Waves (soon to be Katrina & the Waves) with his old drummer mate Alex Cooper, but that's another story. Now, enjoy this second offer here.
