In celebration of grubbiness

Bromley punkster Poly Styrene, born of a Scots-Irish legal secretary and a Somali pirate aristocrat, is no more, having succumbed yesterday to breast cancer at the tender age of 53.

From X-Ray Spex’ “Germ Free Adolescents”…

“Her phobia is infection
She needs one to survive
It’s her built-in protection
Without fear she’d give up and die”

Being a rather grubby adolescent in the mid-seventies, I absolutely loved this stuff!

RIP Marianne Joan Elliott-Said (1957–2011)
