Reverend Genes “Wanted To Run”

Reverend Genes’ biography has no words of niches or trends, greatness or specialness till the end.

Guitars are at the core of the Reverend Genes sound. The electric guitars are single coil Strats, over-driven and crunchy. The bass is always a P bass. There is no specific keyboard played. Instead a MIDI keyboard is loaded with B4, Rhodes or piano sounds. The drums, rhythms and effects are a mix of live triggers and samples. Steel string and nylon string acoustic guitars are used for songwriting and sometimes those parts stay in the final mix.

The main influences include Australian pub bands along with UK and USA new-wave and post-punk sounds. Bands that come to mind include Midnight Oil, The Church, You Am I, The Cure, Stone Roses, Interpol, Pavement, and The Pixies.

Reverend Genes hail from Newcastle NSW Australia.
