Question for Max

Greetings Max,

I have a question for you, I haven't seen this one discussed anywhere here before.

How did "City Boy" come about to be chosen as the name for the band? Who came up with the name, was it an individual or group decision to go with it and what was the inspiration for the name?

Good question, Lee. May I shed a little light on the subject until we hear from Max. According to an article in Dave's press cuttings, Steve says "it was really a sort of compromise with the record company though I suppose we do play what could be termed "city music".

BTW, these press cuttings (including reviews for all albums except "IP" and many of their singles) are a really gold mine for every CB fan. If you like, I can send you copies of them to you.

Thanks much for the offer, mikael. I'll think it over and will let you know if I would like copies of the press cuttings.
