Fusion Orchestra backstage on Hastings Pier

Fusion Orchestra’s live performances were flamboyant, and Jill Saward, who joined Fusion Orchestra as a singer in 1970, had a reputation for erotically charged on-stage antics.

Fashion for men in the 1970s was more flamboyant than for decades previously. In the early 1970s, platform shoes and bell bottom trousers were staples, and wide-collar shirts in loud, patterned materials worn with three-piece disco suits like John Travolta in ‘Saturday Night Fever’. Leisure suits and track suits also featured, although the release of the film Quadrophenia in 1978 sparked a bit of a Mod revival.
