They keep on getting better and better.



Gen And The Degenerates
are back with another new track and continue to expand their musical horizons in the most infectious of ways.

It's called 'Wild Thing' and bristles with soulful rock and roll attitude and spirit whilst also sounding effortlessly modern and immediate. 

It's also a track that means an awful lot to vocalist Gen, which they explain below:

“On the 22nd of April 1966 The Troggs released their version of the song 'Wild Thing'... On the 16th of November 1996 I was born and my mum repurposed it as a lullaby. She sang it to me each night to send me to sleep and I can't help but think this might have something to do with how I turned out the way I did.
 
This song is inspired by that. It's both a celebration and confession of the untamed or unconventional sides of my character that life and other people have tried to squeeze out of me. My intensity, my queerness, my complete inability to march to anyone else's drummer. I hope that everyone else who has a little streak of something wild in them can feel at home in it too.”


Here it is:



It follows on from 'Runaway Blues':
