"Fairground Town" and "Reality Sucks" are the two tracks on this CD single. The accompanying press release states that "Both songs were partly inspired by living in Hull". It sounds as though people in Hull need to smile a bit more as Miles presents a gritty reflection of his experience since moving there in 1994. "Fairground Town" is a slice from the REM cake except that someone stole the bass drum in the final mix. Both songs show potential but are let down by the technical aspects of the recording, the songs were clearly recorded on a tight budget and a lot of the bass end has been lost. Which is disappointing to say the least, as Miles is obviously serious about his music to have gone to the expense of setting up Last Dance Records and have the CD made in the first place.
