The demise of the Radar label is reported in April 1980. Our single ‘I want to be an Anglepoise Lamp’ appeared on the Radar label in March 1978- over the next few months Radar organised and paid for various further recording sessions- nothing more was released. No cash advanced to any Soft Boys- always very much a matter of sleeping on people’s floors, taking odd jobs like temporary Christmas postman etc- before, during and after the brief association with the Radar label.
A photocopy of a photo of Alex Chilton, Morris, Matthew and Knox (of the Vibrators)- these last three accompanied the lead singer of the Box Tops (and Big Star) at a solitary gig at Dingwall’s (Camden). I don’t remember them playing ‘The Letter’.
