CHELSEA - Live and Well


Here’s a blast of Chelsea, captured Live and Well. There’s no details as to where and when this was recorded, but I remember talking years back to Jon Thurlow who played guitar on this and he was pretty sure it was in October 1983 at The Lyceum when they supported Johnny Thunders. I think this is the only recording of this line up which also included Jonny T’s fellow ex Chron Gen member, Pete on Bass, plus Geoff who’d previously played drums with Jon and Pete in Stevenage's legendary punk band, Optional Xtras. This Chelsea line also included Guitarist Willie, who went on to find fame and fortune with The Grip in the 80’s and Honeycrack in the 90’s. As ever the front man ….Gene October, who along with Knox and Charlie Harper are still keeping the punk rock spirit alive, even though Gene‘s been a bit quite of late, although I did hear he was doing/or has done an acoustic gig in Brighton recently.

This was indeed recorded at the lyceum, i saw this line up several times at the marquee club. What are Jon and Pete up to nowadays Nuzz ?

I used to have a few Chelsea bootlegs mainly from shows in Newcastle and Durham but this album is the worst live album they have done - the audience has been overdubbed over the top making them sound ridiculous. Check out Metallic F.O. for a great Chelsea live album.
