What a generous lot Xtra Mile Recordings are. Here is a label that thrust the sorely missed Million Dead into our hearts and minds, as well as nurtured the talents of the mouth-kicking scallywags, Reuben. Well, they did to me. Smokin’ is a compilation album, crammed with a hefty 42 bands – half signed to the label and half unsigned that have been hand-picked by the bands on Xtra Mile’s roster.
