    Info

    This, the lone release by GENEVA is an odd one, it's sought after by many different types of record collector, but doesn't really fit any of the genres you see it associated with.
    Perhaps because of this, it changes hands for relatively small amounts of money, and copies always seem to be in circulation.
    I've seen unscrupulous record dealers list this one as NWOBHM, New Wave, Mod, Punk and Powerpop and at points during the record's playing time you can hear why.
    The best comparison i can give that would chime with NWOBHM fans is that they remind me a little of LIGHTNING RAIDERS here and there, so if you have a soft spot for their releases you might enjoy Geneva.
    So, to use a phrase of Nightsblood's, this is "borderline NWOBHM" at best, not for the purists, but a decent record nonetheless if you are musically open minded.
    I think Geneva (who i could find absolutely no information about), missed a trick by putting "Two Minutes Thirty", on the A-Side as i far prefer the song on the flipside.
    With a beefier production, and without the vocalist's Paul Weller impersonations, this track would have fitted the NWOBHM sonic blueprint quite well.
    That B-Side, "Geneva Street", would later appear on the retrospective 1999 Various Artists bootleg complilation LP "Powerpearls Volume 4".
