Few Boys – Secret Times (Germany 12″)

Posted by DjPaulT on 27th April 2015

BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1985

A. Front

“Secret Times” is the only single released by new beat/synthpop band Few Boys. In 1985, they entered the studio to record this classic which was produced by Axel Henninger (Camouflage). The tracks starts with a spinet intro taken from a work of Johann Sebastian Bach before it evolves to a uptempo synthpop track, similar to many of the 80s Synthpop bands like Depeche Mode and Red Flag. The single was an independent club hit but never made it to a wider audience, failing to have any chart success.

The band never recorded a full album and fell into obscurity after this singles release.
