Gen and The Degenerates
Gen and The Degenerates, write music that digs up the Rock ‘n’ Roll of days gone by, reincarnating and redefining it through the modern lens of frontwoman Gen Degenerate. Drawing as much influence from Howlin’ Wolf as she does from Amy Winehouse, Gen writes self-confessionally about navigating the highs & lows of life as a queer woman. The Degenerates meanwhile, a mischief prone and menacing outfit, drive their song’s forward with a sound that calls to mind a combination of the rhythmic blues of The Rolling Stones and the larger-than-life live sound of Foo Fighters. Together they create a formidable alt-rock force, relishing in taking command of the stage to deliver catchy choruses and anthemic riffs; leaving audiences wherever they play in awe. Those who see them perform learn, as everyone does, that watching this band is witnessing the modern rebirth of rock 'n' roll.
In their 2 years performing together as a band Gen and The Degenerates have racked up performances alongside a wide range of musical talents from across multiple genres including shows with Blood Red Shoes, Queen Kwong, The Ninth Wave, Bang Bang Romeo, ZuZu, WSTR, Strange Bones, Saint Agnes and many more.
