City Miles - Songs Of The Truth


  Now this is a pleasant surprise, a previously unreleased track by my favourite oi band from the last few years, City Miles ( 

   I first featured their debut song Skinhead Till The End back in April 2017 and commented that "as of writing they've 13 likes on Facebook, let's see if we can get that number up." Some of the catchiest oi anthems around ensured they managed to do so. They also took the time to submit a Top 10 list of their favourite songs which featured some of the bands that influenced their sound ( 

  2019's debut album, Social Upheaval (, was a genre classic and earned them lots of praise and plenty of new fans but the release was overshadowed by the tragic passing of their lead singer/drummer Marc 'Mates' Maitland. 

  And so a brilliant band was no more. 

  But just to remind us how good they were comes this nostalgic look back at late night radio shows, home taping and the music that shaped our lives. It's called Songs Of The Truth...
