Charlie Murphy has already appeared on here this year with his band Internal Credit (https://justsomepunksongs.blogspot.com/2019/01/internal-credit-internal-credit.html) and he returns today with a song from the new album
by his band Freak Genes. A duo, as well as Charlie there's Andrew Anderson (Hipshakes/Proto Idiot), this is their third album (following on from Playtime and Qwak Qwak) so not unreasonably it's titled 111. It's available from the ever reliable Drunken Sailor Records.

They're pitching the album as garage rock meets Gary Numan and also throwing names into the mix such as Wire, DAF, The Units, Flying Lizards and Lodger-era Bowie. What you get are 12 playful and inventive synth pop songs that are a joy to delve into. Quirky and unconventional, there's plenty of repeat play value.
They've released a video for the song Waxing Moon (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dIf8vserdY4) but I've decided to highlight a different one today.
This song would have probably been a Top 40 smash if it had been released before the charts went to shit. It's called Nothing In Between Us...
