The Soft Boys reissue Underwater Moonlight and A Can of Bees

The Soft Boys formed in 1976, dissolved in 1981, and reformed for a 21st anniversary tour and reunion album in 2001. Now, comes another round of reissues. The Soft Boys’ Underwater Moonlight is being released in its 10-song original form by Yep Roc, on CD and 180 gram vinyl. The reissue features all the bonus tracks as digital downloads free with purchase. The vinyl release is the first ever reissue of the LP in its original form. ‘Underwater Moonlight’ has long been considered a classic record, “Big Star and us were the rickety bridge between the Byrds and REM”, says former Soft Boys’ main man Robyn Hitchcock.

Additionally, the first Soft Boy’s album, A Can of Bees is also being released with similar bonus downloads. “A red-hot poker up the arse of rock music” was how Julian Cope once described this album. The vinyl version of Bees is the first ever reissue of the LP in any form.
