Vintage 80's Generation-X Bootleg T-Shirt

file under: early british punk

rare Generation-X bootleg t-shirt
year: 80's
tag: long gone
material: 100% cotton
condition: pretty thrashed
value: $175
*note: no provenance for this tee. acquired last year at a second-hand clothing store in Los Angeles. definitely a bootleg printed in a garage years ago. Gen-X were one of the coolest early British punk bands. Billy Idol and Tony James wrote some of the catchiest punk anthems of the late 70's. The Sex Pistols sang about "no future" but Gen-X sang about having fun and getting laid. Their albums were always in heavy rotation in my car stereo and all those great songs have stood the test of time.

rare live 1977 footage shows the full energy of the band
