Katrina And The Waves ‎– Rock ‘N’ Roll Girl (12″)

Do we really need this for a Saturday Morning, of course we do!!!

Dipping my toe into 1989 and  Pop Rock via Katrina And The Waves. I didn’t even know they were a Cambridge band and have been going since the mid-70’s. Obviously, everyone remembers the School Disco favourite “Walking On Sunshine” and they had the Bangles cover one of their songs , “Going Down To Liverpool”

This is catchy power pop from their 1989 LP ‘Break Of Hearts’ Great vocals from Katrina Leskanich. The B-side is quite interesting, more synthy in a Simple Minds, Stadium Rock kind of way.
