Oh Bondage, Up Yours!


The BBC reports today the Punk Rock icon Poly Styrene, of X Ray Spex, has died today after a battle with cancer of the spine.


X Ray Spex's unique sound blended traditional punk fuzzbox guitar with the less traditional saxophone and the wailing vocal skills of Poly Styrene. The experiment was short-lived. Like many of the best Punk bands of their time they released just one album, Germ Free Adolescents, in 1978. Their music influenced and inspired a generation and is as powerful and poignant today as it was 34 years ago.
