Song of the Day: Gene - Fighting Fit

Despite enjoying my share of Britpop, I didn't hear Gene until I the Morrissey-curated NME compilation Songs to Save Your Life, which came with an issue of the mag back in the mid-2000s.  It's no surprise Morrissey digs this group, as the lead singer certainly shares some of his own qualities, and this song is definitely more Your Arsenal-era than it is the Smiths.  The big guitars sound fantastic, and this song probably wouldn't sound too out of place on You Are the Quarry.
