FAREWELL TO ICONIC POLY STYRENE
Poly Styrene, the unforgettable frontwoman and iconic face of the seminal band X-ray Spex died from an advanced form of breast cancer .Poly showcases her humorous musings on pop culture, the internet and fashion whilst also tackling heavier subject matter (war and racism) with her politically aware and intelligent lyrics.
With her never-failing ability to connect with her audience regardless of the year and their age, Poly Styrene’s remarkable voice was still as vibrant and innocent as ever, remaining a genuine icon and one of the premier influences on the Riot Grrrl and Britpop scenes.
A series of hit singles have stood the test of time, making Poly a genuine icon.
With her great self-styled image, brilliantly sharp lyrics and powerful presence, Poly’s indomitable spirit still inspires.
