    :( Awe. I don't usually care much for celebrities and what not but that makes me sad, I really loved the XRay spex. Also I feel like I have more sympathy because she died of something legitimate, not drugs or alcohol. Bye Poly!

    X-Ray Spex were - and still are - one of my favourite bands. They were one of the first punk bands I really got into. This was one of the worst pieces of news to wake up too! I wish it wasn't true, but it is. I just hope she's in a better place (wherever that may be).

    The better place that she's in is not suffering the horrible pain of cancer anymore...

    bit late to this thread, but I'm not ashamed to say I shed a tear or three for Poly
    I'm old enough to remember X Ray Spex first time round, and it really mattered to have strong non-caucasian women speaking their minds
    not to mention the absolute individuality, especially when the media started turning punk into a fashion to be followed

    her lyrics were ridiculously fucking prescient, too

    glad to see so much support here!
