Chron GenFrom Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia:

Chron Gen were a British punk band formed in January 1978 in Letchworth, Hertfordshire. Chron Gen was comprised of former members of The Condemned and Optional Xtras. Band members included Glynn (Baxter) Barber (vocals/guitairist), Jon JJ Johnson (drummer) Jon Thurlow (rhythm guitar) and Pete Dimmock (bassist). The band released their debut EP "Puppets of War" (also had singles versions of "Lies", "Chronic Generation", and "Mindless Few").
With the success of the EP, Chron Gen was invitated to join The Exploited, Discharge, Anti-Pasti, and The Anti-Nowhere League on the now infamous Apocalypse tour in the UK in the summer of 1981.
Floyd (one of the later members of the group) died on 31 October 1999.
Glynn Barber obtained his nickname 'Baxter' following his own surname being misspelt. He tours local pubs and clubs regularly as a solo artist using that name. He is also part of a glam rock tribute band, Rebel Rebel.
