Poly Styrene was the fabulous voice of punk band X-Ray Specs and possibly the best Punk female voice. She was not only a great voice but also her style stood out as it was so different from what every other punk band was doing at the time.
See for yourself what I am talking about, in this fun video from 1978:
As someone wrote in the comments section on youtube “Timeless classic from a timeless album written and sung by a teenage Irish/Scottish/Somalian prodigy in? braces and her Grannys hand-me-downs.” That pretty much sums it up and even though Poly lost the battle against cancer last year, great talent and style never dies and is never forgotten.
inspiring music and inspiring style!, love punk classics!
