Last year, Britpop fans everywhere rejoiced over the release of former Gene frontman Martin Rossiter’s first solo album, the Defenestration of St. Martin. The album received rave reviews from critics and fans alike. Martin has also been lending his musical chops to the Brighton-based group Call Me Jolene. Today, the sampler for their upcoming EP (due out on May 1st) debuted on Bandcamp. If you’re a fan of Gene’s sound, you will certainly enjoy Call Me Jolene.
Question: am the only one that thought “Oh Lover” might be a cover of the old Gene song from Libertine?
