Poly Styrene: Get Well Soon!

Today I heard the terrible news that Poly Styrene (frontwoman of the brilliant sax-punks X-Ray Spex) has been diagnosed with cancer. Fans will know that she's been gearing up to release solo material in 2011, and looked set to take the world by storm yet again.

While her album Generation Indigo is still being released on March 28th, she's currently unable to commit to any live dates while she gets better. But with her fighting spirit she'll no doubt return to the stage soon... oh cancer, up yours! Get well soon Poly, we're all thinking of you.

And as a reminder of just how commanding and fearless she is, here's some vids of X-Ray Spex in their heyday:
