Named following the stage and display actress, the Gena Rowlands Music group may be the brainchild of ex-chamber punk group Telegraph Melts founder Bob Massey. Massey, that has made up ratings for film, dance, and internet, freelanced for Spin and Salon publications, and it is curator for the Punk Not really Rock and roll Composer Salon in Washington, D.C., spent his formative years immersed in the post-punk D.C. picture. He spent quite a few years playing, adding, and touring, actually collaborating with filmmaker David Wilson around the modern opera The Nitrate Hymnal, which brought collectively users of D.C.’s underground rock and roll picture and New York’s avant-classical, before assembling the Gena Rowlands Music group. The music group, a rotating solid with Massey in the helm, shipped character-driven post-punk having a chamber pop sheen, and released their debut, self-titled EP in 2003, accompanied by the full-length La Merde et les Etoiles the next 12 months. The Nitrate Hymnal (with Anti-Social Music) made an appearance in early 2006, and Flesh and Spirits premiered a year later on.
