2008년 부산에서 만들어진 밴드 지니어스(Genius)는
'난봉꾼들'에서 시작해 '엄마아들(Mamason)'로 이름을 바꾼다.
첫 베이스 연주자 '앤디 구띠에레즈'의 고향 복귀와 함께
'엄마아들-Mamason'의 이름으로 앨범을 만든다.
떠나는 친구를 위한 기록물이다.
(밴드 Mamason,앨범명 Yangachi-2009년)

이 후 새로운 베이스 연주자 서창완이 함께 하면서
이름을 지니어스(Genius)'로 바꾼다.
2010년 6월, 1년을 함께한 서창완의 군입대와 함께
두 번 째 기록물을 만든다.
(밴드 GENIUS,앨범명 Birth Choice Death-2010년)

이 후, 새로운 베이스 연주자 스티브와 함께 현재까지 활동 중이다.
단순하고 빠른 Rock n Roll 을 원하는 이들은
2년 동안의 '취권'들을 모아 올해 새로운 앨범을 만들 계획이다.

"우린 펑크가 아니다.그냥 술에 취했을 뿐이다."
(We are not Punk.Just Drunk.)

GENIUS was created in 2008 in Busan from the remnants of garage band ‘Nanbongkundle’. Known then as Mamason, the band recorded its debut album to commemorate bassist Andy Gutierrez's return to the U.S.
(Mamason, Yangachi 2009)

Mamason became GENIUS with a new bassist, 서창완 Seo Changwan. In June 2010, he entered military service and GENIUS recorded its second album to commemorate his time with the band.
(GENIUS, Birth Choice Death 2010)

GENIUS is now active with new bassist, Steve C.

The music is simple, blistering rock. It combines outrage and deadpan humor in oddly tragic songs: a man noting the onset of his period (“Period”), a premature ejaculator recounting a night with an ex’s angry mother (“Yellow Rabbit”). It's for those who love the catharsis of ‘77, who can spend all day with a stack of pulp comics, who want more poetry out of their knuckleheaded rock. This is drinking music for the thinking man and thinking music for the drinking man ("About Loving Someone").

They are now working on a third album.

“We are not Punk. Just Drunk.”

Track Name: Period 2
Here is difficult for me sometimes
because of buildings so ugly
there are no parks and trees and all
people look grumpy grumpy grumpy
goddamn grumpy

I feel like I don't have many friends and I
spend too much time
with stupid kids
Anyways these days
I have my period

Maybe this Friday I will feel better
cause finish period
Track Name: Watching TV
I am watching TV alone in my bedroom now
What am I
What am I doing now?

She is watching TV alone in the living room now
I love her
I love her so much

Why did you bear me?
Why did you have me?
Track Name: At the Moist Bar
Last night I drank with her
I just chose orange juice
But she attacked me like this
"Why'd you choose orange juice?"

Chill out, chill out, I'm not a douche bag
Chill out, chill out, I'm just nothing

That same night she drank with me
she just chose cranberry juice
But she attacked me like this
"I wanna have a strong boyfriend"

Chill out, chill out, I'm not a douche bag
Chill out, chill out, I'm just nothing
Track Name: Sweet Long Sugar
Where are you from?
What are you made of?
I don't want to get hurt
I just want a taste
Just wanna try some
What are you doing to me?

Sweet long sugar
Please don't kill me

Where are you from?
What are you made of?
Don't like what they're telling me
How could I know?
Why didn't you say so?
I want you out of me

Sweet long sugar
Please don't kill me
Track Name: Puppy Is Not My Friend
만나서 논다 무당벌레와 벌
연속 동그라미 아침에 다리 힘을 잃어

시간표를 만들어 가장 먼저 실천한건
자신이 개발한 맨손체조
애견은 내친구가 아니야
Track Name: Fantastic Island
11 November 1978
28 February 2009

My best friend JJ
He died last night
Traffic accident
Real last, last night

Fantastic Island
Fantastic Island
Fantastic Island
In Fantastic Island

Early morning his wife call me
I cry she cry
Never stop cry

I must go Fantastic Island

Where is Fantastic Island?
Where is Fantastic Fucking Island?

If you drink do not drive
If you smoke do not kiss
Track Name: Bordo Girl
If I meet such a pretty girl
I don't need any help
Rudolph blood, bear blood, tiger blood
I don't need anything

I want a full course
Full service
yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

Sing a song
Touch a nipple
Seafood
Last time
Delicious fucking smoke

Walk and smoke
Fucking smoke

Do you need a fresh girl?
Yeah I need a fresh girl
Tonight I'm so cold
Like a winter river my blood
I want a Oriental eyes
deep in the night
Sometimes I think of Buddha face, horse face,
your face, my face, smiling face

bordo girl
sexy bordo girl
Track Name: Galchi
Where are all of you right now my friends
took me somewhere I don't recall too well
I should get up and find my way home again
the sun is up and I'll be late for work

What did I do to my
What did I do to my head?
I just wanna die
just lie and wallow in bed

If you could see me last evening
Everything was going so easily
Then whiskey and screaming
And three skinny girls staring
She was smiling maybe nervously
At least I didn't use her inappropriately

What did I do to my head?

A vomit puddle and a throbbing skull
and a circle of piss all around me
I've still got one shoe and the puke
it'll wash off cause my
my suit's so shiny
Track Name: About Loving Someone
숨 쉴 때 마다 잃는 듯한 따뜻함이여
들리지도 않는 기적소리에 고개를 들지 말어라

시끄러운 빗소리 크디큰 저 파도
저주같은 이 삶에 무얼 얘길 하고파
난 그저 이렇게
사람이 아닌 사랑이 필요할뿐

눈물과 눈물 다시 눈물뿐인 이곳에서
누군가를 사랑한다는 것
이미 그건 내 몫이 아니었어
이런 간헐적 광기에 난 미쳐간다
Track Name: Period 1
