Pylon, Soft Boys: Moonlight Club, London

Betty Page, Sounds, 10 January 1981

THE SPORTING SBs stepped down for Pylon, Athenians from Georgia, after their Music Machine extravaganza was blown out by a freak fire. Best described by a favourite journalistic euphemism — interesting — the Soft Boys dream of Syd Barrett, whimsy and psychedelia in the most unfashionable sort of way. A hardcore of followers were noisy but the general drab long-coatedness of the Moonlight was left intact.
