26 Apr

Marianne Joan Elliott-Said, born 3 July 1957, is best known as Poly Styrene, singer of the pioneering punk rock band X-Ray Spex.

“On 29 October 2010, announced that Poly Styrene was to release a solo album titled Generation Indigo, produced by Martin Glover (aka Youth from Killing Joke), in March 2011.

She released a free download of “Black Christmas” in November 2010.  “Black Christmas” featured and was written in collaboration with Poly’s daughter, Celeste.  It was inspired by the killing spree in Los Angeles instigated by a man dressed as Santa Claus.” (from Wikipedia)

    I have to admit- her life passed without me knowing a thing about her. But this was a beautiful tribute and if she was a part of you’re growing up, then I love her. My favorite part was this quote: “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.” Isn’t that perfect?
