R.I.P. Poly Styrene

I woke this morning to the sad news that Poly Styrene lead singer of the punk band X-ray Specs had died after losing her battle with cancer. She was 53.

I had a teenage crush on this woman the minute I set eyes on her at the Birmingham Odeon in 1978. Loved her music too….

‘Oh Bondage Up Yours’ by X-ray Specs (Virgin Records 1977)
