The Jezebels were always attuned to the darker side of romance and sex, unlike the shiny, neutered pop yearnings of their contemporaries. Like most early 80's bands, they'd been weaned on glam rock, but it was the underground that was receptive to their punk-funk undertones and vision. Fronted by androgynous twins Jay and Michael Aston and featuring an evolving cast of musicians, the early recordings had an experimental edge that has kept the music fresh. Long unavailable, this classic catalog is finally re-issued in double disc packaging. "Discover" CD 1: a Top 40 UK chart entry, this was the album that got the band signed to Geffen in the US and introduced the classic line up. CD 2: this bonus disc includes some tracks never before issued on vinyl, let alone CD, which were only available on cassingle.
Excellent for G.L.J. fans!

"I have been a Gene Loves Jezebel fan since the eighties, however I have lost touch of them in recent years. I recently purchased the two-cd editions of Discover, Immigrant, and Promise, and have been delighted with my purchases. The second cd for each one has brought back the reason I liked the band in the first place, containing plenty of rarities and songs previously unavailable on cd. They also include new photos, lyrics, and stories from members of the band. If you have been a fan of this G.L.J. era then you will be very pleased!!! Hope they re-release House of Dolls with extras!!!"

"Gene Loves Jezebel is definitely a great band! They are among the best bands from the 90's. All GLJ albuns I listened to so far are good. Highly recommended. Don't miss it!"
