Shaped in Edinburgh, Scotland, through the ashes of pop group Badger, the Headboys – Lou Lewis (guitar/vocals), Calum Malcolm (keyboards/vocals), George Boyter (bass/vocals) and Davy Ross (drums/vocals) – guaranteed a lucrative deal with Robert Stigwood’s RSO label on the effectiveness of a couple of superior demos documented at Malcolm’s very own studio. They liked a minor strike with ‘The FORM OF Things To Arrive’ (1979), but a faintly ludicrous schoolboy picture undermined their understand of power pop. The Headboys had not been a commercial achievement as well as the group split immediately after its launch. Malcolm later on relocated his studio room, Castle Audio, to a town around the outskirts of Edinburgh where they have since become among the leading documenting centres in Britain. Customers have included Basic Minds as well as the Blue Nile, for whom Malcolm offers acted as an auxiliary member.
