Gene recopilan su discografía en un boxset

A mediados de los 90 asistimos al nacimiento de Gene, uno de los candidatos a alzarse con la herencia del mejor pop británico. En sus canciones se dejaba sentir el poso de The Smiths, The Style Council o Small Faces.

Discos como Olympian (95), To See The Lights (96) y Drawn To The Deep End (1997) o canciones  como “London, Can You Wait?”, “Be My Light, Be My Guide”, “For The Dead”,  “Olympian” o “Where Are They Now?” son buena muestra de ello.

La banda se separó en 2004 y desde entonces no hemos tenido noticias suyas, tan solo de su cantante Martin Rossiter, que ha hecho sus pinitos en solitario sin mucha suerte.

Su música sigue teniendo una tremenda vigencia, por lo que han decidido compilarla en una jugosa boxset para coleccionistas en el que se recopila toda su discografía, aparte de sus cuatro álbumes ,un buen número de rarezas, directos, maquetas y caras B.

Gene: The Albums se edita el próximo 14 de agosto en dos formatos: uno contiene 9 CDs y otro 8 vinilos de colores.
