Generation X: Live at the Paris Theatre '78 & '81


While this pair of live BBC broadcasts from 1978 and 1980 is out-of-print in this version, a re-edited, shorter version was made available by Strange Fruit Records before it went under and MAY become available at Amazon.UK (possibly...). Thankfully, all the Generation X albums you NEED to own are also readily available there.



What makes this a fascinating document is the ability to show just how drastically the band changed from the obstreperous "Your Generation" to the onanistic "Dancing With Myself".


Live at the Paris Theater link is in the comments


Generation X albums are still cheap at Amazon!

  4. They were often derided by 'holier than thou' punks but we all know that it's all rocknroll, and they were one of the best. Great tunes, great looks, great lyrics and for my money one of the best all-time album covers for their first album.
    Many many thanks for sharing these treasures!

    Yeah people love drawing lines according to arbitrary reasons but it's the songs and how they hold up that matters and Gen X matter.
    You're so very welcome.
