Chron Gen on Captain Oi
Hailing from Stevenage, in Hertfordshire, Chron Gen (Glynn Barber – vocals / guitar, Jon Thurlow – guitar, Pete Dimmock – bass and Jon Johnson drums) burst onto the Punk scene in the summer of 1981 when their self financed "Puppets Of War” EP hit No.4 in the then important Independent Chart. This led to them joining The Exploited on the seminal "Apocalypse Punk” tour that rampaged round the UK and led to further Indie Chart hits courtesy of "Reality” (No.2) and "Jet Boy Jet Girl” (No.4).
Their debut album "Chronic Generation” also hit the No.2 spot and even got to No.53 in the National Charts which was no mean feat in those media led Punk boycott times. The band also played the UK with the Anti Nowhere League on the legendary "So What” tour and scored further Indie Chart success with the "Nowhere To Run” mini LP and "Apocalypse Live Tour” in concert release.And let’s not forget the single "Outlaw”, a confirmed Punk Rock classic as far as The Captain is concerned.
