Poly Styrene (1957-2011) R.I.P

So fuckin' sad...another deceased punk this year. I never was much of a fan for '77 punk bands but X-Ray Spex had a soft spot in my heart because of the not-giving-a-fuck-I-am-a-pissed-teenage-grrl-with-not-much-of-a-future vocals/lyrics and because there's still not another punk band that sounds awesome with a saxophone!
Riot grrls take notice...she was the first!

X-Ray Spex-Identity

Is the crisis
Can't you see
Identity identity

When you look in the mirror
Do you see yourself
Do you see yourself
On the t.v. screen
Do you see yourself
In the magazine
When you see yourself
Does it make you scream

When you look in the mirror
Do you smash it quick
Do you take the glass
And slash your wrists
Did you do it for fame
Did you do it in a fit
Did you do it before
You read about it
