Do you know what the internet says about City Boy?
It says that they were a moderately successful rock band. Someone actually had the nerve to write that. If you look up literally any band on Wikipedia, it doesn’t say what their level of success was in the first line.
This basically says to anyone who reads about them that they were kind of successful. Their level of success is irrelevant.
If they ended up only being mildly successful for any reason, it would be because they weren't properly promoted, and they weren't the first band this has happened to.
I found City Boy by accident while record shopping, and I was blown away the first time I heard "Book Early". They were the first art rock band I ever liked, and I still can't believe what an amazing band they are.
They had so much interesting stuff going on in their music, and they are massively overlooked despite being such an amazing band.
I've curated a playlist of my favorite City Boy tunes for you to listen to while you read this showcase post...so check it out, turn it up, and pass it on.
