Generation X formed in late 1976 by Billy Idol, Tony James and Derwood Andrews with Mark Laff joining in early 1977. They signed to Chrysalis in the Summer of 1977, with their first single ‘Your Generation’ following in September. They were one of the first punk bands to appear on the BBC TV’s Top of The Pops, followed closely with subsequent singles ‘Wild Youth’ and ‘Ready Steady Go’. Their debut album ‘Generation X’ produced by Martin Rushent (The Stranglers, Buzzcocks, Human League), was released in February 1978 and reached number 29 in the UK charts.
This Record Store Day Exclusive 7” Red Vinyl contains two previously unreleased mixes of the classic single ‘Your Generation’ and later b-side ‘Trying For Kicks’ by Alan Winstanley. Both tracks have been newly remastered from the original session tapes.
