The passing of a genuine punk.

How sad to hear of Poly Styrene's death from cancer at the young age of 53. She was one of the genuine iconoclasts of the punk movement. I last saw Poly with Xray Spex at the Anti-Nazi gig in Victoria Park in '78. The woman had her problems but she was what Her Indoors likes to refer to as a "good old gal". I can't find a better description. RIP Poly.
