In 1974, Leigh formed Radar Favourites, a group with Gerry Fitzgerald (vocals, guitar), Kathy Williams (keyboards, vocals), Jack Monck (bass guitar) and Charles Hayward (drums). The group disbanded the following year after Virgin Recorded turned them down, but it did lead to a long musical relationship between Leigh and Williams. Their first project was a duo, Rag Doll, followed by Red Balune, a music theatre collective they formed in 1976.

In 1974, Leigh formed Radar Favourites, a group with Gerry Fitzgerald (vocals, guitar), Kathy Williams (keyboards, vocals), Jack Monck (bass guitar) and Charles Hayward (drums). The group disbanded the following year after Virgin Recorded turned them down, but it did lead to a long musical relationship between Leigh and Williams. Their first project was a duo, Rag Doll, followed by Red Balune, a music theatre collective they formed in 1976. Red Balune grew over the next few years and attracted a number of musicians, including Colin McClure (bass), Rob Musgrove (drums) and Anne-Marie Roeloffs (trombone).

In December 1977 Red Balune toured Holland and returned to England in January 1978 to begin recording an album. The album was never finished, but they did release a single, "Spider in Love" c/w "Capitalist Kid", which became a "seminal underground classic". [2] In April 1978 the band relocated to Holland, but Leigh left in September and moved to Brussels. In Belgium Leigh met and performed with two local bands Aksak Maboul and Univers Zéro, and gave a series of solo performances in Belguim and France. In 1981 Leigh moved to Rotterdam and formed The Black Sheep, a "surrealistic variant on Henry Cow" [3], with Colin McLure and Loek van Saus.

They released a 12" maxi single, "Animal Sounds", and toured Holland, Belgium, France, Switzerland, Sweden and the former Yugoslavia. The Black Sheep performed again in 1986 with the addition of Chris Cutler and Lindsay Cooper. Read more on Last.fm.
