Active: 1976-1981 / 4 studio LPs
Gen X looked like a teenage boys band playing teenybopper punk
and build a massive fan base mostly with their shouty riff-rock-fueled
singles and, of course, Billy‘s looks. After the split in 1981 Idol moved
to America to start a titanic solo career (remember White Wedding?).
Bassist Tony James formed eccentric-looking novelty band
Sigue Sigue Sputnik.
