"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." (Twitter)
A scene from the life of a mad priest:
30th. April 1978. Victoria Park, London.
100000 people, young/old, black/white, gay/straight.
X-Ray Spex walk on stage.
Poly giggles and says, "Some people say little girls should be seen but not heard."
Then she screams, "But I say, O bondage, up yours!!!!"
Then the greatest saxophone intro of all time and the rest, as they say, is history.
