Poly Styrene- RIP

Poly Styrene lost her battle against cancer yesterday.

Although she kinda fell off my radar after X-Ray Spex
folded, for a brief time in my punk infancy, she provided
a neon burst of colour and humour in a movement that
could disappear up it's own arse with "this is how punk
should sound"!

Backstage, she would chat to anyone who came up to her
and just seemed to enjoy life.

Give "Germ Free Adolescents" a listen, worth it just for the
explosive, sax driven anthem "The Day the World Turned Dayglo"
