Voodoo Dollies - The Best of Gene Loves Jezebel

Voodoo Dollies - The Best of Gene Loves Jezebel

The gloriously syrupy drones of Gene Loves Jezebel's frontmen (twin brothers Jay and Micheal Aston) rose in the afterglow of such pop doomsayers as Bauhuas and Siouxsie & The Banshees. And it all worked together swimmingly. This set collects everything great the band did between the years 1983 and 1999, from their broody dance-club hurts (“Bruises,” “Influenza," and “The Cow”) to the stuff recorded after former Gen X guitarist James Stevenson had joined the fold (the big-lunged hits “Desire,” “The Motion of Love," and “Jealous”). Stevenson’s muscular modal riffs brought pop energy and concise songcraft; this helped the band’s fortunes rise, especially in the United States, throughout the mid- and late '80s. By 1993’s should’ve-been-big “Josephina,” the band were all but done—but not before they released the truly beautiful “Who Wants to Go to Heaven” in 1999, a tune that fittingly closes this set.
