Generation X - Generation X [Remastered]

Generation X history was rooted in another legendary punk band, Chelsea. But after a few gigs, three of the four members left the band and formed Generation X. Only Gene October remained of the original four.

Generation X came to prominence way after its demise, thanks to one Billy Idol who became a huge star in the 80’s. Also, Tony James’ post-Gen X band Sigue Sigue Sputnik enjoyed some success around that time.

Anyway, this album is a classic thanks (again) to Mr. Idol who churned out some pop punk gems like Ready Steady Go, Kiss Me Deadly, One Hundred Punks, From the Heart. Since this is the remastered version, it includes bonus tracks like their first single Your Generation and Wild Youth and its B-side Wild Dub plus 2 b-sides of Friday’s Angels.

This is a kickass record. And you can’t make a punk compilation with including Ready Steady Go or Kiss Me Deadly.

I always felt that Promises Promises was mastered at the wrong speed- cd AND original vinyl. It'll be interesting to see if there is a difference here.
