Profile In the second half of the ’80s there was in UK two bands under the same moniker: GENEVA. Quite confusing, as both played the same Melodic Rock / AOR style so profuse in the islands at the time. Well, one of them, from Canterbury, was lucky enough to release a 3-song EP in 1988 entitled “Temptation”.  The title track is a punchy melodic rocker with a cool refrain, while the others are keyboard driven AOR numbers with “She’s Got Everything” sporting a catchy chorus and the midtempo “Everytime” carrying a superb melody. A very good EP with all the eighties magic. Despite critical acclaim from Kerrang magazine amongst others, the band split in 1991.
