11 August 1977 – Generation X/Pink Parts – Nag’s Head

A fourth appearance in 1977 at The Nag’s Head by the rapidly rising Generation X saw another packed house at the London Road venue. Promoter Ron Watts also gave locally connected Pink Parts a return slot in front of a now ‘punk’ hungry crowd.

Nag’s Head gigs advert from the Bucks Free Press – The Rezillos, Darts, Generation X, Pink Parts, Tony McPhee and The Groundhogs – a busy month!

Generation X had signed for Chrysalis Records in July 1977 and would release their debut single, ‘Your Generation’ just under a month after their August 1977 appearance at The Nag’s Head.

The set list that evening would have been chosen from the following songs:

  • Rock On
  • From The Heart
  • This Heat
  • Above Love
  • New Order
  • Listen
  • Wild Youth
  • Ready Steady Go
  • Day by Day
  • Kleenex
  • Trying for Kicks
  • Youth Youth Youth
  • Your Generation

The day after The Nag’s Head gig, Generation X would play London’s Marquee Club in Wardour Street. ‘Your Generation’ was filmed for a video for the single.
