Links

Chron Gen was formed in January 1978 and the line-up was: Glynn Barber (vocals, guitar), John Johnson (drums), Pete Dimmock (bass), John Thurlow (guitar). It took some time before band released it's first single as D.I.Y. After that record labels changes fast and bands style developed more and more melodic. Best success band had with the Chronic Generation LP which hit the Top 100 for one week - position 53. The last studio LP was pure melodic pop.
