The Soft Boys

The Soft Boys were a pop band during the punk era led by Robyn Hitchcock, whose initially old fashioned music style of psychedelic/folk-rock became part of the neo-psychedelia scene with the release of Underwater Moonlight. The band formed in 1976 in Cambridge, England as Dennis and the Experts comprising 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 Kimberley Rew replaced Davies. Matthew Seligman replaced Metcalfe in 1979. The band broke up in 1980 after Underwater Moonlight.

Yeah, it's just a sudden town
Yeah, it's just a sudden town right now
The arches that stretch from the railway station
Lead to the terminus
Yeah it's just a sudden town

Rails shine back from perspective distance
Oola la la la la la
Yeah it's just a sudden town

Poles that could only be used for overhead wiring
Stand with the wires all gone
Moonlight she crackles on looming orbs all
Peppered with rusty rivets
Yeah it's just a sudden town

Chimneys are lit by a fading sun
That tapers away on a cold horizon
Yeah it's just a sudden town

Heaven will pelt you with energy
While you cripple yourself with a moment's heartbreak
Yeah it's just a sudden town

Stand in a shop on the Archway Road
And someone will kiss you as you stand guard
Yeah it's just a sudden town
Alright

Cottages full of eternal men all
Seeking a dream in the old erection
Yeah it's just a sudden town

Pick up your bag from the restaurant
And shuffle away to a lonely keyhole
Yeah it's just a sudden town

Weaving up and down, your light beside you
Nobody talks to you anyway
Nobody knows how you even got here

And the ghouls will come
Aw yeah, the ghouls will come
Singin' sha la la la la la la
Sha la la la la la la la la la
Sha la la la la la la
Sha la la la la la la la la la
Yeah, it's just a sudden town
