X-Ray Spex came about shortly after the first wave of punk hit the UK. A few things set them apart. Most notably the vocal style of their singer, Poly Styrene. In addition to the vocal sound, they also sported a sax. Not a common thing in punk music then.
My niece used to venture into my room as a toddler and want to hear this record over and over when she visited. She's now in her 30's and has no memory of her love for this record.
X-Ray Spex didn't put out all that many records. Just one album and a few singles. Not sure they were ever released in the USA. The singles and album I have are UK issues. Pressed on some pretty colored vinyl as well.
Poly's passing warranted nary a mention in the mainstream press. Not that she'd care.
Some people think little girls should be seen and not heard, but I think OH BONDAGE UP YOURS!
