X-Ray Spex- The Artist

X-Ray Spex is a British punk band formed in 1976 in London by lead vocalist Poly Styrene after being inspired by seeing the Sex Pistols perform live. Initially, the band featured singer Poly Styrene, Joan Elliott-Said on vocals, Jak Airport on guitars, Paul Dean on bass, Paul ‘B. P.’ Hurding on drums, and Lora Logic on saxophone. This latter instrument was an atypical addition to the standard punk instrumental line-up, and became one of the group’s most distinctive features. Lora played on only one of the band’s records. As she was only fifteen, playing saxophone was a hobby and she left the band to complete her education. Poly Styrene became the group’s public face, and remains one of the most memorable front-women to emerge from the punk movement. During their first incarnation (1976–79), X-Ray Spex were “deliberate underachievers” and only managed to release five singles and one album. Nevertheless, their first single, “Oh Bondage Up Yours!”, is now acknowledged as a classic punk rock single and the album Germfree Adolescents is widely acclaimed as a classic album of the punk rock genre.

Germ Free Adolescence – The Song

‘Germ Free Adolescence’ is a song written by Poly Styrene, and performed by British punk band X-Ray Spex. It came from their debut album Germfree Adolescents.
