Poly Styrene of X Ray Spex


Telegraph Obit here

"A woman of mixed race who wore fluorescent thrift-shop outfits and proudly sported dental braces onstage, she refused to conform to conventions of how female performers — punk or otherwise — were expected to appear."

Identity

I remember her and her bubbly personality in NME interviews. She was an original and colourful character. I hope life gave her more than a brief period of semi fame as a rock singer.

Pretty certain my daughter Andie (who became a punk rock aficionado in her uni years) probably danced to X Ray Spex in her play pen cum mosh pit as a toddler.

Perhaps she and Poly are singing together now wherever it is that singers go when they pass out of this world. I hope so.

Used to cover some X Ray Spex numbers when I was in a punk band of sorts at the time.

Met her when we supported at the Porter House at Retford. She bought me a pint then poured it over me. Cool. (Or at least I was when we were outside putting the gear in the van in a wet t shirt.)

Retford Porter House, eh? I remember it well, The Slits and The Buzzcocks. Punk gave a lot of dives in one horse towns an extra few years of life.

Some people think little girls should be seen and not heard, but I think Oh Bondage Up Yours.

Respect.
