Josh Clayton-Felt "Building Atlantis"

I'm on vacation this week, so here's another We Used To Play This post:

This song could have been a hit.  We played it.  But circumstances were really what prevented its success.

Josh Clayton-Felt was a Boston-based musician who had success in the 90s with his band School Of Fish, and had a minor alternative solo hit called "Window" in the mid-90s.

He was working on a follow-up, when he was diagnosed with a rare form of testicular cancer.  He passed away within a month.

His label released the record, but when an artist is unable to tour or even interview in support of a record, that record has a hard time gaining any traction.

mvyradio played "Building Atlantis" but the record slipped from public consciousness, and our playlist, not long after.

Hear the song on Youtube.
