Band history

Formed in August 1976 Chelsea played their first concert on October 18, 1976. Line-ups changed a lot over the years, with Gene October being the only original band member. They released their first single "Right To Work "on Miles Copeland's "Step-Forward" label in June 1977.

Stewart Copeland watched several concerts and eventually filmed the band during the 1982 Anti-Nowhere League tour - for his movie So What.
