I think chris should take his bass over and meet with max and try out some of his new songs and see what he thinks of them. But first they really need to just sit down face to face and iron out any anger they have against each other, and just be friends again. :cheers: Sure max might need to borrow some cash to get the project going but i am sure he will pay it back in full when the cd starts selling so every one needs to help him out. And i really do feel you guys owe us fans a new cd :rant: for all the years we have been fans and bought your music. You know you should do it so do it. We need a lot less fighting and a lot more band pratice. And you need to get in touch with the rest of the band as soon as you can, and get them on board. So i have laid it out for you plain and simple so lets go guys no more fooling around. :uhhuh:

Unfortunately he doesn't seem very keen on it but after 30 years it ought to be time to bury the hatchet and I don't mean in each others head. Just look at the movie The Grudge. It's like a curse and it just goes on and on and the hatred is constantly fueled ans thus keeps on going indefinetively. Why not just draw the line in the sand and say enough is enough. Nobody is getting any younger and you might not play together again so what is the point to take this bitterness to your graves? Do you want to be angry lonely men like Scrooge?

Whilst a reformation of sorts sounds great, plus, I would love to hear and see City Boy's old music live, even with only part of the line up (I am sure there are a few guitarists out there who could do a pretty good emulation of Mikes playing whilst obviously not exactly the same) is it really likely to happen :?:

Regarding new music, I would love to hear new material even if only "in the same vein" even if performed by a couple of "original" band members...

18 months on, still a lot of talk and not a lot of action....... Maybe one day......
Thank you - I love you all!

Maybe...hopefully...I'm not counting anything out. I mean Max is the guy who got IP released after all those years. Lots of problems and things standing in their way, I grant you, but if it's meant to be, nothing will stop them.

I haven't counted if they have all the tracks from IP but just half a year or so there was just a couple of tracks from that album on YouTube so I guess it is good if more tracks gets up over time. The only videos I don't like is TOTJ since it has simply been dubbed over the 5705 video and the lack of lip sync is quite annoying. Neither do I like Oddball Dance since for some odd reason the part of the Oddball Rag has been edited out and it is sometimes details like that that annoys the crap out of me.

I believe max will get it done, he has always carried cityboy. And he should be in total control of the production of the next recordings.But hey thats just my feelings on it. :idea:

It would be absolutely wonderful if all six original City Boy members were involved in any future projects, but it seems that too much has happened in the past for that to ever happen, but as long as Roy and Max are involved in the new album then that's fine with me!

If Roy is still joining in with this discussion, I would like to ask him a question if I may. What happened to Tokyo Charm? Runaway was a fabulous single, but you never released a follow up. Did you just get fed up with it all or something?

Much love to Roy, Max and everyone.

I don't know why this suddenly came to mind...

Wow, it's great to know that you have an opinion OOT, as wrong as it is. You're obviously not a real City Boy fan or you would find something to like in EVERY ONE of their albums. Which leads me to suspect that you're just a cranky family member of Chris or Steve. Man, how long can you guys hold a grudge? You sound like those two whiners from Supertramp.

anyhoo, howdy everybody! haven't been here in a while and it's good to know that the possibility is still there of Max and Roy and maybe Mike doing some music. I'll buy it whatever it's called.

Hi Kacey,

Welcome to the board. Always great to see new people jump right in. With you joining, dare I hope we have have another woman on the board? Not many of us here and the estrogen deprivation is a bit lonely sometimes.
