Mega City Four - Miles Apart



One of the best gigs i went to was in a student union place in Lancaster called The Sugar House and it was by a band who formed in 1987 called Mega City Four. They came from Farnborough, England, and originally consisted of vocalist/guitarist Wiz (Darren Brown), his brother Danny (guitar/vocals), Gerry Bryant (bass/vocals) and Chris Jones (drums). Playing catchy punk infused indie anthems they soon became a big hit on the live circuit and released a host of singles/albums up until they split in the early part of 1996. Tragically, in December 2006, Wiz died after collapsing with a brain haemorrhage.A trust, The Forward 4 Wiz trust was set up in his name ( http://www.f4wt.org/about-2/ ). Today's song, their debut, is dedicated to his memory, this is Miles Apart.....
