#309 – Jay Aston of Gene Loves Jezebel – New Album – Dance Underwater

UK’s Gene Loves Jezebel formed in the early 80’s and had their biggest success in the US with songs like 1986’s “Desire” and “Jealous,” which hit #1 on the Alternative charts in 1990.

Now, the band is back with their first new record in 14 years, Dance Underwater, which contains a killer single, appropriate for the time, “Summertime.”

We talk with Jay Aston about bringing the original lineup of the band back together for this new record, and working with David Bowie’s producer, Tony Visconti.  Plus, he sheds light on the difficulties of having his brother, Michael, tour with his own version of the band and the confusion that it causes fans of their music.
