First time on here for post-grunge Indie rockers, Mega City Four. Named after a possible fourth city in the Judge Dredd comic strip from the then very popular 2000 A.D. comic. The quartet of Wiz, (guitar and vocals) Danny Brown, (brother and rhythm guitarist and vocals) Gerry Bryant, (Bass and vocals) and Chris Jones (drums) were formed in 1987 in Farnborough, Hampshire and disbanded in 1996. Wiz died suddenly in 2006 after a brain clot.
This was released in 1992 and sees Chris Potter (who went on to do work with The Verve) producing the main track, an anthemic but gentle rocker. The additional tracks were produced and mixed by Jess Corcoran. “Everybody Loves You” quickens things up with a singalong chorus. The short and frantic “Disturbed” reveals their punk tendencies, finishing with a film sample that I couldn’t identify.
The band had an intense, loyal following and by all accounts were an excellent live act. Criminally overlooked from the early 90’s Indie Rock scene.
