City Boy

Amongst the many beguiling debuts of 1976 was the eponymous entry from the bodacious Birmingham sextet City Boy. Over the next several years, City Boy weathered the colliding musical currents with sassy swagger (“Deadly Delicious”) and power aplenty (the thundering “Narcissus”), whilst strands of art rock, hard rock, pomp pop, folk, and the ever-pervasive prints of Little Feat etched and sprayed the graffiti walls of City Boy’s concrete urban turf. Oft-tagged as a cross betwixt 10cc and Queen, our runaround boys indeed contained a guy named Lol and possessed a polar-analogue to “We Are the Champions” in the emotionally climatic “Dangerous Ground”, City Boy’s **GREATEST** song of all!
