LOCATION:Cambridge, UK

The Soft Boys were an influential neo-psychedelia and post-punk band from Cambridge, England often associated with the early punk rock movement. The band formed in 1976 as Dennis and the Experts and featured Robyn Hitchcock (main songwriter and singer), who later went on to a distinguished solo career, and later Kimberley Rew (lead guitarist), who went on to be part of Katrina and the Waves.

Original members were Robyn Hitchcock (guitar), Rob Lamb - half brother of Charlie Gillett - (guitar), Andy Metcalfe (bass), and Morris Windsor (drums). Alan Davies replaced Lamb after only four gigs late in 1976, and Rew replaced Davies in just before Christmas 1977, and Matthew Seligman replaced Metcalfe in 1979. The band broke up in 1980 after Underwater Moonlight. They briefly re-formed for a UK tour in 1994 and then again in 2001 for the 20th anniversary of Underwater Moonlight and the release of a new album, Nextdoorland (in 2002). They disbanded once again in 2003. (read more at Wikipedia)
