Gen and the Degenerates
The definition of commitment is getting something tattooed on you, and that’s what Gen and the Degenerates have done. They believe deeply in the beautifully riotous noise they’re making, so much so that the whole band went for matching tattoos. Combining the edge of Joan Jett & the Blackhearts with the rock n roll heart of The Struts, Gen and the Degenerates have a true commitment to the sound of what they’re creating.
It’s this dedication and determination that fuels some of their songs. Most of them meeting through school and college, they then moved to Liverpool and found their “final piece of the puzzle” who came in the form of lead singer Gen. Gen says for the most part it happened when they were drunk: “We used to record rough versions of songs with me stood in a cupboard in Jay’s room with a blanket over my head. It’s the rock’n’roll dream! We accidentally wrote a song and realised we actually might have something here.”
Gen comments “We want world domination. That’s a statement of intent.” Tattoos are optional, but Gen and the Degenerates want you as part of the family and they’re not here to mess around. Are you in?
