Poly Styrene 3 July 1957 – 25 April 2011

I’ve just noted the sad passing of Punk legend Poly Styrene aka Marianne Joan Elliott-Said. If you’ve not got a copy of 1978’s essential X-Ray Spex LP ‘Germfree Adolescents’, do yourself a favour and click here to get classics like ‘Art-I-Ficial’ and ‘Warrior In Woolworths’.  But she was still making fantastic music right up to the end, as evidenced by her recent Christmas single ‘Black Christmas’, surely one of the tracks of last year.

Here’s a nice little 0bit courtesy of Channel 4 News:
