When Reality Hits You on new Powerpop Compilation

27 Dec

Hope all of you have had a great year! We know news have been scarce in 2012, but that’s in large part due to the fact that no less than three kids have been born in the Genuine Fakes family this year! But we’ve quietly pushed on with the recording of the new album throughout the year, and we’re happy to announce that it’s finally close to completion. All that’s left is some final tweaking and mastering! We can’t wait for you to hear it, but we don’t have a release date set yet. Rest assured that you will hear our new songs in 2013 though!

Until our next album sees the light of day, you can enjoy a great double album jam packed with powerpop hits. Power Pop Planet Volume One is available for pre-order now, and it consists of 30 songs from 30 bands. Our contribution, “When Reality Hits You”, is taken from our debut album and it’s the very first song on the first CD. The proceeds from the sales go towards keeping Pop Geek Heaven free for all you powerpop fans, so it’s for a good cause.

We wish you all a prosperous 2013!

“The Striped Album” turns 1

17 Jan

Today is the first anniversary of our debut album.

We hope you will enjoy the next album just as you did the first. Here’s to a fun and prosperous 2012!

There are still CD’s to be had in our webshop if you haven’t bought one already.

Uber Rock reviews Liner Notes

21 Nov

British online magazine Uber Rock says good things about our latest release.

“Swedish powerpopsters The Genuine Fakes follow up their debut release, ‘The Striped Album’, with all the bits they had left over from those sessions – kind’ve like Dr. Frankenstein throwing together a Mini-Me from the slops bucket… for newbies of The Genuine Fakes this EP, or mini-album, is a great introduction to the band and, at nearly 30 minutes in duration, is only a song short of some full-length albums.”

Onechord.net reviews Liner Notes

14 Nov

Vesa from Finland, author of onechord.net (also co-host of Flavor of the Month which we visited in September) writes nice things about Liner Notes:

“These are not some barely decent tunes that didn’t make the debut album, because they weren’t any good. I think these are ridiculously amazing considering that fact and many power pop groups would have been proud to have written even one of them. While the debut was a loud power pop album best suited for Friday nights, these new mixes might bring some melodic greatness to Sunday mornings as well. “
