Quartet formed in 1976 of singer/guitarist Robyn Hitchcock, Morris Windsor on drums, Andy Metcalfe on bass, and guitarist Kimberly Rew. In 1980, Matthew Seligman replaced Metcalfe, the band recorded the classic album "Underwater Moonlight" and then broke up. Windsor and Metcalfe later joined Hitchcock's backing band the Egyptians, while Seligman became an in-demand session musician and Rew went on to form Katrina and the Waves. The original lineup reunited in 2001 and recorded a new album.

In Music We Trust - Nextdoorland
Album review by Alex Steininger, rated B+. "You can't help want, maybe even expect, Underwater Moonlight II. You're not going to get it, but Nextdoorland is a suitable follow-up twenty plus years later, and a good album to boot."
