Re: 2016 CB interview!

Good to know that Steve and Lol are pals again. Gosh, that must have been an awful times since they had known each other since childhood. I have long since given up on the reunion and it looks like I was right about that. Well, we still have the 7 albums to listen to. Better than nothing.

Re: Promo item I never saw before

Once in the early 70's one of those Apollo capsules was touring around the world for some reason long lost in time. I don't even know the number, it might had been 11 though. Half ot town must have been down at the harbour waiting for the ferry from Copenhagen to arrive. I managed to get a good plac...

Re: 2016 CB interview!

That is great, Mikael. Hope it gets up asap. If you get in touch with the guy ask him if he knows what happened to Roger. The most anonymous of all the members of the band. Is he even alive today?

Supper's Ready - the illustrated version

I just found this video yesterday and just have to share it with everybody. Why pick Supper’s Ready for your film? From my very first listen, I knew I'd want to illustrate this song someday. From its technical eloquence to the band's pageantry in performing it live, Supper's Ready weaves so many str...

Re: Talk of a reformation of City Boy

Since pre-CB was called BITB (Back in the band), perhaps post-CB could be re-named WLOTF (What's left of the band)? |: There is, weirdly, a Back in the Band doing gigs in Birmingham at the moment. Some old geezers doing cover versions of all sorts of stuff. Have you had any chance to listen to them...

Re: new production by Steve

I can't agree more to that. I can't stand that type of music at all. I'm glad Steve found his rock'n'roll heart again.

Re: City Boy on YouTube

I usually take the chance to plug one of my favourite bands of all time. As long as there is one of two videos still I can always post one of those, although it might not be any of my favourite songs. But when that door also has been closed, I can just mention their name. Nothing else. But nothing i...

City Boy on YouTube

For years there have been a lot of stuff on YT. But recently they have started to disappear one after another. Anyone has any idea what is going on? Same old copyright infringement shit that has been going on for years and years? I don't understand how this could even count as piracy as it is hard t...

Re: RIP John Wetton & Overend Watts

I was shocked when I first read it. Wasn't that long ago I heard someone say he had recovered from his cancer. I know that it can come back with a vengeance unfortunately. Perhaps that was what happened? When Daevid Allen died they gave him at least 6 months or so. Then he died shortly after he had ...

RIP John Wetton & Overend Watts

Looks like Anno Domine 2017 also are going to be a year of great culling. :( John Wetton has died at the age of 67. The news was confirmed by his manager Martin Darvill, who said that the cause had been colon cancer. Wetton had undergone major surgery in 2015 to have a one-kilo malignant mass remove...

Re: Interview with Mike Slamer

I knew this one for a few years already, but nevertheless nice to post it here Robin. :cheers: It triggered me to re-listen to it. I think Mike was more friendly and more willing to talk about his City Boy years, compared to the other interview (with Elmar). And early life plus City Boy consumed ne...
