By request Generation X's Idol Generation. An incomplete A & B side release that I highly rank. Even as an album it would be one of Generation X's best. As I have mentioned before, I am a HUGE fan of all things UK punk from the glory days of 1977-1979. Generation X have always been one of my favorite groups around. From their look, to their glamish punky sounds. They have always been a favorite in my music rotation. This comp. is just fantastic. Songs like This Heat, No No No, Trying For Kicks all could have been A sides...just amazing stuff here. Like The Rich Kids they just excelled at pop inspired punk and pulled it off. And just like The Rich Kids I wish that Generation X would reform and do some shows. I know they have tried once or twice and the end results were not too satisfying, but sometimes magic can happen again. I never got to see Generation X but would love to!!
