Have A Kool Kat Kristmas!

Earlier this year we were asked to contribute a previously unreleased original in order to raise money for a good cause. Naturally, we agreed to do so and the result can be heard on A Kool Kat Kristmas Vol. 2 (Kool Kat Musik). “You Always Come Back Home (for Christmas)” is a song that we played live a few times but never really finished – Now we had a good reason to do so!

You can listen to it and the rest of the songs on Soundcloud.

A portion of the proceeds from the sale of each copy will be donated to The Susan Giblin Foundation for Animal Wellness and Welfare. The Foundation’s mission is to raise and dispense funds to support animal caregiving organizations, to foster awareness and education of complementary therapies, and to support the continued education of those in the animal medical field.

When Reality Hits You on new Powerpop Compilation

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

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.
