Classix Nouveaux


UK group that were part of the 'New Romantic' scene. Originally a punk band called X-Ray Spex but in 1979 renamed themselves Classix Nouveaux after singer Poly Styrene was replaced by Sal Solo and radically changed their musical style in the process. CN became fairly successful in many countries, playing to crowds of up to 25,000 people. Their final appearances came in 1985 after which they split up, with Sal Solo going on to start a solo career.
In May 2021, the band surprised fans with a new single, which was a remake of "Inside Outside" from their first album. Since then they have announced a new album to be released in 2022 but have no live performances planned. On 29 May 2022, their single "Fix Your Eyes Up" charted at number 10 on The Heritage Chart (as broadcast with Mike Read on Talking Pictures TV).
The new album 'Battle Cry' was released on November 17th 2023 on Cherry Red Records, 40 years after their last studio album.
