Poly Styrene

April 26th 2011

 "Some people think little girls should be seen and not heard." Not Poly Styrene, she made a great big day-glo noise…

Sad news today: Poly Styrene has passed away.  Poly’s Twitter feed announced the news this morning, “We can confirm that the beautiful Poly Styrene, who has been a true fighter, won her battle on Monday evening to go to higher places”
“Poly Styrene made a truly original contribution to the spirit of punk. Celebrate her life!” Billy Bragg.

Music journalist Simon Price has probably said it best today, “Oh cancer, up yours... R.I.P. Poly Styrene, you absolute legend”.
