Recommended Posts

i think you have nice legs too. and a great little ass. can't wait to shake it with you on the dance floor.

i am still touched at your fabulous idea when schwa asked if we could be any rock stars, which ones we would be, when you suggested that i be gene and you be dean so we'd be able to hang out with our favourites of the brothers ween. you are a genius! or a weenius! hahaahha, okay sorry that one hurt.

I'm jumping out of my seat here that Gener actually gives one of my favourite albums (if not my absolute favourite) Abandoned Luncheonette by the immortal Hall & Oates the due it deserves. It eat suckers.


City Paper: Did you listen to a lot of Philly soul before recording?

Gene: Yeah. It sounds really pitiful [but] Those early Hall and Oates records -- like Abandoned Luncheonette -- the amount of soul in those records [is] unbelievable, and I'm not discounting any real Philly black soul, but for me, I was kind of obsessed with that record, and it epitomized in a way a white man's interpretation of Philly soul, but it was still real. … I think if you're born in Philly, you just naturally have some sort of floating soul chromosome going on that's very uniquely Philadelphia. I really do believe that. So I just let it come out.
