In a recent interview with Drowned In Sound’s Marc Burrows, former Gene front man Martin Rossiter is quoted as saying:
I’m sure now would be a very apt time to reform Gene, but I would rather eat my own penis. Fried. With shallots.
Ouch. Martin goes on to say that he doesn’t believe in reuniting bands solely for the purpose of draining fans’ wallets which is very admirable. Do yourself a favor and read the entire interview on DiS as it’s a good one.
