Death Of A Disco Dancer - Poly Styrene R.I.P.

UK punk icon Poly Styrene has died, age 53, on the eve of releasing her comeback album Generation Indigo (produced by Youth). As the lead singer of X Ray Spex she forged a unique place in punk - while others were screaming and being noisy, Styrene was being insightful, screaming and noisy. While best known for in-our-faces 'Oh Bondage Up Yours' and 'I Am A Cliche', it was later single 'Germ Free Adolescents' that unnerved the most. Her single 'Virtual Boyfriend' was only recently released.
