RIP, Poly Styrene

This morning I received the very sad news that Poly Styrene, punk feminist lead singer of the band X-Ray Spex, passed away yesterday at age 53. She was an amazing musician and activist, and as Beth Ditto put it, “so ahead of her time…she recreated punk.”

Word of Poly’s passing is all over music sites/blogs- check out Brooklyn Vegan or NME for more information. Here she is performing in the song that helps me remember why I identify as a feminist punk.
