In November of 78, known disease lacking youths and all around great band, X-Ray Spex, released their debut album.
To say that Poly Styrene had a singular voice and style is an understatement and her contribution to punk rock cannot be overstated.
Through her song-craft, vocal delivery and stage presence, she showed an entire generation of women that they too could write tunes and play in rowdy bands.
What of the album’s quality, you ask?
It is one of the very best punk records of all time.
