Gene
Libertine

'Libertine' was the final album by Britpop collective Gene. The band were most well-known for taking on the sound previously championed by the Smiths, and although they painstakingly removed some elements of originality and passion from the template Gene have arguably aged much better due to boasting a singer who hasn't become a kind of musical Jim Davidson in the intervening years. This is a 2xLP reissue on Demon.

'Drawn To The Deep End' was the second studio album by Gene. It was originally released in 1997. The record contained the singles 'Fighting Fit', 'Speak To Me Someone' and 'Where Are They Now'.

Gene
To See The Lights

'To See The Lights' was the second album by Gene, released in 1996. Although this is a compilation album, it is still regarded as a necessary piece in the band’s catalogue. It features some of their earliest recordings along with B-sides, live tracks and covers of the Bacharach & David song 'I Say A Little Prayer' and The Beatles’ 'Don't Let Me Down'.

Gene
Olympian

Gene were mid-90s NME darlings who were massively influenced by The Smiths - something evidenced by Martin Rossiter’s vocals and their album artwork. Other influences such as The Jam and The Clash meant that their sound sat quite neatly in the Britpop scene. 'Olympian' was Gene's debut album and was originally released in 1995.

Yours For The Taking - The Best Of Gene

Marking the 25th anniversary of the release of their debut studio album, overlooked British indie act Gene present a new greatest hits compilation, Yours For The Taking. Emerging during the height of Britpop and drawing comparisons with classic British bands such as The Smiths and The Jam because of Martin Rossiter’s literate lyrics, they faded out by the early Noughties but not before notching up ten UK Top 40 hits, all of which are included here.
