Boys Town Gang – The Artist
The Boys Town Gang were a disco and hi-NRG band from San Francisco, California. Their popularity peaked in the 1980s when the group reached No. 1 in the Netherlands, Belgium and Spain as well as No. 4 in the UK with their cover of “Can’t Take My Eyes Off You”. In 1980, DJ Bill Motley saw an opportunity to form a disco group that catered to San Francisco’s large gay clientele. In his search to form a group, he auditioned hundreds of vocalists, both male and female. Local cabaret singer Cynthia Manley captured the lead spot. The idea was originally for one 12” single with two tracks of high energy disco music but their popularity spawned various singles and LPs.
Can’t Take my Eyes Off You – The Song
‘Can’t Take My Eyes Off You’ is a version of the original 1967 song written by Bob Crewe and Bob Gaudio. It was first recorded as a single by Frankie Valli. The song was among his biggest hits. “Can’t Take My Eyes Off You” has been recorded in many other arrangements, many of which have been on the charts in different countries. The song is a staple of television and film soundtracks, even being featured as part of the plot of some films, such as when the lead characters sing or arrange their own version of the song.
The Human Eye – The Shape
This record has been modelled into the silhouette of a human eye. The human eye is a paired sense organ that reacts to light and allows vision. Rod and cone cells in the retina are photoreceptive cells which are able to detect visible light and convey this information to the brain. Eyes signal information which is used by the brain to elicit the perception of colour, shape, depth, movement, and other features. The eye is part of the sensory nervous system. Similar to the eyes of other mammals, the human eye’s non-image-forming photosensitive ganglion cells in the retina receive light signals which affect adjustment of the size of the pupil, regulation and suppression of the hormone melatonin, and entrainment of the circadian rhythm.
