Inspiration – Poly Styrene

March 15, 2012

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.
