REWIND: Gene - 'Haunted By You'

Every week on my other music site RW/FF, I take a look back at the songs entering the UK singles chart 20 years ago in 1995. A few weeks ago (in an article you an find HERE) I looked back at the chart from March 5 1995, and picked a golden great from the Britpop scene as my favourite entry of the week, the number 32 'Haunted By You', from the marvellous Gene. Often dismissed as Smiths wannabes, the more attentive always knew that there was a lot more to them than that, although 'Haunted By You' does remind me of a more sentimental 'What Difference Does It Make'. Gene went on to release four studio albums before eventually disbanding in 2004. Those albums were all reissued last year with lots of bonus material, and a full review of the whole collection can be found HERE. Meanwhile, frontman Martin Rossiter released his long awaited debut solo album 'The Defenestation Of St Martin' in 2012, which turned out to be a wonderful record. More about that HERE.
