Hang out the bunting, tickle your fancy and attempt a chord change on a vuvuzela. Five years after the break-up of Gene - one of my favourite bands, their frontman Martin Rossiter is back.


Not only is he performing bass / keyboard duties as part of Brighton-based quartet Call Me Jolene, he's also preparing some solo material.  

A video of him performing the Gene classic Olympian in May has been YouTubed, but more excitingly yesterday he released his first new solo material online with the song Drop Anchor. Typically gorgeous it is too:

Welcome back Martin.  You've been missed.
