Germ Free Adolescents was probably one of my all time favorite punk albums. Sad to see her go so young.

Jeez... NPR just reviewed her new record yesterday (they gave it a good review and it was definitely a Poly Styrene record). The only mention they made of the cancer was a reference to a cancelled US tour.

I've been on a massive punk rock kick as of late, which of course you can't do without X-Ray Specs. Poly Styrene had to be the coolest Hare Krishna ever.

Germ Free Adolescents will serve well as her enduring contribution to the world. And thanks again Nobody for covering me with the CD version of that album so many years ago!

Did I say that?

I hope so. It's true.
