ROTW-X-Ray Spex – The Day The World Turned Day-Glo

I know there are other things going on today and a few tunes sprung to mind (Billy Idol-White Wedding, The Smiths-William It Was Really Nothing, MIdnight Oil-Wedding Cake Island, etc) but this week saw the passing of one of Punk’s true originals. Sadly, DIY fashion icon and lead singer of X-Ray Spex, Poly Styrene died from breast cancer on Monday 25th. Is there a better song title than “Oh Bondage, Up Yours!”? I put that on my facebook page on Monday, so my choice from the vinyl bin this week is “The Day The World Turned Day-Glo”, 7″ of punk/pop perfection …….
