Cambridge's summer festival "Strawberry Fair", 1978. (Note the "new romantic
meets psychedelia" styling!)
It is interesting to see both the Soft Boys, and Chris Hamburger and Kimberley Rew's band, called (in this incarnation) "The Hamburger Waves" on the same bill. Even though their first album is still several months away, it is the Soft Boys who are headlining and have the coveted privilege of a scheduled start time.
Significantly, the previous year the Waves had taken the headline spot.
With the Waves in decline and the SB's on the rise it is not surprising that around this time Kimberley jumped ship and became a Soft Boy.

Godwin for this one. (Many years after the first ...in 1998!)
