• Gene - The Albums - 9CD Box Set

RELEASE DATE - 14th August 2020

Celebrating the 25th anniversary of their debut album 'Olympian', Edsel Records presents a Deluxe 9CD box set of the much loved and respected Gene. The box set features all four studio albums; ‘Olympian’, ‘Drawn To The Deep End’, ‘Revelations’ and ‘Libertine’. It also features the live album ‘Rising For Sunset’ and the 1996 compilation ‘To See The Lights’.

Inspired by the songs of The Smiths, The Jam and The Faces, Martin Rossiter’s literate vocals and Steve Mason’s fluid guitar lines were perfectly complemented by the intuitive rhythm section of Kevin Miles and Matt James. They released four studio albums and a collection of B-sides and radio demos between 1995 and 2001, were named Best New Act at the inaugural NME awards in 1995, and went on to score 10 Top 40 hits.

Presented in a deluxe box set with original album artwork, the box includes a booklet and written notes by each member of the band and respected journalist Keith Cameron, who signed the band to his Costermonger label in 1994. Three bonus discs include; ‘Drawn To The Deep End’ rarities and B-sides, ‘Revelations’ single edits and B-sides, and ‘Libertine’ demos and bonus material.
