Katrina and the Waves: Songs For The Common Man

Roy Trakin, Creem, August 1986

IF IT'S TUESDAY, this must be...Universal City. You'll have to forgive this peripatetic foursome if they're a little disoriented. Plucked from the middle of an Australian tour, Katrina & The Waves have been flown into an uncharacteristically gray California for a full slate of activities. The night before, they played the Tonight Show; today, they're ensconced in two hotel rooms doing the requisite spate of interviews for the brand-new elpee, Waves, the follow-up to last year's self-titled debut, with its hit single, ‘Walking On Sunshine’.
