Misery Monday 22/26 Gene
Misery Monday featured the Smiths a few weeks ago and now it is the turn of a band whose harshest critics labelled Smiths lite. There was so much more to the band Gene than that. As I wrote here they should have been a lot bigger but maybe lacked that defining personality to take them to the next level.
This track comes form the second lp Drawn to the Deep End and it is one of the tracks where you can see the Smiths comparisons. It features some achingly beautiful guitar and a sorrowful almost pleading vocal that tells you all you need to know about a love that you just no is doomed not to fail.
