The Waves - Brown Eyed Son


On this date in 1982, The Waves released their second single, "Brown Eyed Son". It was backed by "She Loves To Groove". They would soon change their name to Katrina and The Waves. The A side appeared on their debut album, Shock Horror! (still as The Waves). The B side was a non-LP track. The Cambridge, England new wave/power pop band was formed by ex-Soft Boys guitarist Kimberley Rew. They disbanded in 1997.
