Since there wasn’t any animosity surrounding their break-up, The Soft Boys actually reunited twice: the first time was in 1994, where they played a few shows in the U.K. to tour for the box set The Soft Boys 1976-1981, though it’s hard to tell how much Kimberley Rew was involved with that one, though both bassists Andy Metcalfe and Matthew Seligman were apparently onboard, as was drummer Morris Windsor. This, BTW, was after Hitchcock disbanded the Egyptians, which of course featured Metcalfe and Windsor. By the way, this will all be on the test.
The second time was in 2001, when Matador did a big 20th anniversary set for Underwater Moonlight, and it was the same musicians who played on that record: Hitchcock, Rew, Seligman and Windsor. And that proved to be so successful that they went into a studio and recorded their first album since Underwater Moonlight, 2002’s Nextdoorland.
