Originally formed in mid 1976, Chelsea (initially called LSD) fragmented later that year when Billy Idol, Tony James and John Towe left to form Generation X. But founder member, Gene October wasn't about to give up. By February 1977 he had a brand new line up and was once again playing the London Punk Circuit, supporting such legends as The Clash, The Cortinas and Sham 69. Later that year Chelsea released their debut single 'Right To Work', which was quickly followed by the first of three Radio 1 John Peel sessions. By December that year the line up had changed once again and Chelsea had become a five-piece. 1978 saw the band busier than ever as they treated ever-growing crowds to their distinctive 'angry young man' punk style, which was to be one of the biggest influences on the second wave Punk movement of the 80s.
