Today is the first anniversary of our debut album. We thought it would be appropriate to thank every one of you who has bought the CD, downloaded it on iTunes, listened to it on Spotify and come to our gigs. 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.

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.”

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. “
