RIP Poly Styrene: ‘Oh Bondage, Up Yours!’

by | 27th, April 2011

RIP Poly Styrene, aka Marianne Elliot Said. Cue the nostalgia. But Poly was not always accepted. She was once the anti-fashion rebel. She was the screeching voice of X Ray Spex, a band that if you blinked you missed. But they mattered. At their pomp, the punk bands were everything the Establishment hated.

When in 1977, Poly told the press, Some people think little girls should be seen and not heard, but I say Oh Bondage, Up Yours! ”, you gasped. Now you don’t bat an eyelid. But without that, you would not get Lily Allen calling you a “cunt” on Twitter and holding her own with the boys.
