This Canadian Geyser Come to London and Saw Generation X

Jeremy Gluck, Sniffin' Glue, August 1977

"YOUTH, YOUTH, YOUTH". I heard that chorus on a tape just once and spent the whole week mentally playing it over and over. Then I saw them live and added four more to my mind's playlist. A week more and I was writing "Generation X Rule" in Underground stations. It must be love.
