In April 1977 Generation X recorded their debut session for John Peel. The four songs they chose to do were:
Day By Day
Youth Youth Youth
Forward wind to September 1st 1977 and the debut single for Generation X was Your Generation backed by Day By Day.
I can remember dashing home from school to see the Marc Show (Marc Bolan's tea time show on ITV) and the guests one week were Generation X (he also had The Damned, Eddie and the Hot Rods and The Jam among his guests over the season). They were also one of the first Punk bands to appear on Top of the Pops.
