|Generation X carry on from last nights
Roxy show with a gig at London's
Greenwich Theatre. Support comes from
the up and coming pop rockers Squeeze
and The Zips not to be mistaken with the
Glasgow Zips who formed in 1978.
|Today The Boys naively signed a five-year deal
with NEMS and became the 2nd UK punk band
(following the Stranglers) to sign an album deal
(The Damned had a one-single deal with Stiff and
the Sex Pistols had been sacked by EMI). Although
Polydor, a major label, offered to buy out their
contract NEMS wouldn't allow it so The Boys were
left to make the best of NEMS obvious limitations.
