Gene to release ‘The Albums’ in 8LP Limited Edition vinyl set – Get a closer look!

The mighty Gene are, for the first time, releasing all their albums on a tremendous 8LP special edition set to order now. It’s limited to 1,000 copies, and already looks like a ‘must-have’ for any indie collector – we’re hoping to get some expanded shots soon but for the moment, had to share the info…

The band, inspired by the likes of The Smiths, The Jam and The Faces, were led by Martin Rossiter’s distinct vocals, alongside the wonderfully talented Steve Mason, Kevin Miles and Matt James. This beauty from Demon Records, who’ve been behind some epic re-launches in recent times, celebrates the 25th Anniversary of Gene‘s debut Olympian (and I fell in love with For The Dead so many moons ago) and features all four studio albums, plus the compilation:

  • Olympian (1995)
  • Drawn To The Deep End (1997)
  • Revelations (1999)
  • Libertine (2002)
  • To See The Lights (The 1996 compilation)

Each album is presented with original artwork and printed inner sleeves, plus the limited edition comes with a 12″ x 12″ print signed by the band. The vinyl is pressed on 180g heavyweight coloured vinyl: Olympian (180g White Vinyl), Drawn to the Deep End (180g Maroon Vinyl), Revelations (180g Green Vinyl), Libertine (180g Pink Vinyl), To See The Lights (180g Gold Vinyl).

Finally, a glorious booklet with written notes by each member and a piece by journalist Keith Cameron, who signed the band to his Costermonger label in 1994.

If you’ve been after these 5 for a bit, well, this could be as good as it gets (sorry, not sorry) oh, and if you can’t stretch the big set, there’s also a lovely 2LP (and CD) set, as a ‘best of’, also available to order – and we review that right here!
