Poly Styrene sings about tube stations, package plastic and anti-septic mouth-wash. S & M, rat infestations and suicide.
Her backing group play loud raucous pop with dashes of blazing saxophone.
It's a special combination.

Poly Styrene is a genuine one-off; a loner, a misfit. Her songs describe in brilliantly observed and acerbically realised fashion, what it's like to be the perpetual underdog, the dissolute, the eternal victim.
Like so many others of her time.
The difference - Poly Styrene never once stoops to the level of ghastly icon's like Jimmy Pursey; dismally urging 'unity' and 'rebellion'
(splutter!) among the 'working classes' and the exploited. She's got mounds more dignity and class.
Her creative levels are higher than a hundred ultra-conservative Oi! groups and two hundred crypto-capitalist Crass's.

X-Ray Spex belong with the Pistols, the Clash and Siouxsie. I suppose you'd call that 'real punk' (a tiny canon), and musically, they live comfortably with any of their better known 1977 contemporaries.

Sure she's angry, and we're certainly in the realm of the caveman (or should that be 'cavewoman'?) music that has pre-occupied your nerveless, heroic reviewer lately, but Poly Styrene is a tad more refined, just a touch more noble. You could say she's evolved into something more akin to the Stone-Age than the barbarous and uncouth 'rock-man' of pre-'new wave'.

She's tiny, sings hoarsely and nervously and is the worst dancer the worlds ever seen, but she's got iron in her blood and acid in her spit. If I were to print you some Styrene words, you would think she's at least as good as Strummer or Lydon, and better than the rest. She's razor-sharp and lively.

Splashy, manic fun. If you want to explore a great, overlooked band in the mold of Madness, only crazier and more driven, check out this wonderful, two-CD anthology of Xray Spex. The band is led by Poly Styrene, a female vocalist with a strong and ranging voice and a penchant for songs about alienated youth, our plastic society and smothering commercialism. "Warrior in Woolworths" is one the best examples of a Spex song, rollicking music framing social commentary as piercing as it is humorous. These Brits were an underground rage and sadly the band was short-lived. Which brings me to my only criticism of this brightly packaged collection. The group basically only had one album, Disinfected Youth, and so on both discs you get multiple versions of the same songs, upwards of five versions of a few. Now the Peel Sessions performances are worth having, but it does tend to get repetitive and a little annoying otherwise to listen to at one sitting. That said, Disinfected Youth was a brilliant batch of songs and the key description of the this band is FUN.

If you're going to build a rock collection that means anything you need to include this CD.

I could write more but that might take time away from you listening to it or ordering it faster.

A must have to any classic punk collection. This CD is classic and after all these years still one of my favorite CD's. There's a lot of extras on here that weren't absolutely necessary but the more the merrier.
