X-Ray Spex

X-Ray Spex

UK punk band formed in 1976. After singer Poly Styrene left in 1979 to pursue other interests the band auditioned for a new singer and changed their name to Classix Nouveaux.

Band was re-formed in 1991 for a short while but had a rather indifferent reception, but then re-formed again in 1995 and has played live every now and then since.

Mari Elliott (Poly Styrene) died of cancer at the age of 53 in 2011.
