Cool. "Black Christmas".  ;D

She did a duet with Brian James a few years ago (on his "Brian James Gang" album), which I enjoyed.
Just around the corner and miles away...

I have not heard that. I will have to look out for it. Last music I bought of poly's was the 2nd X-Ray spex lp Conscious Consumer, which I liked.

I've got all three of Poly's previous solo efforts. Nothing like X-Ray Spex. Very Hari Krishna with mellow, laid back vibes.
 But I like 'em anyway. ;D

That is a great song! It reminds me of X-Ray Spex of old without the sax. Think I will get the album when it's released.

Shit, I missed this awful news:

"22nd February

It comes as a huge shock to all those who know Poly Styrene.

Poly has been diagnosed with cancer and is currently undergoing various treatments in her battle with this illness.

She is devastated that she cannot commit to any live dates at this stage, but her album remains a very positive force in her current journey.

"It's been a bit of a battle fighting this cancer but hey ho I'm still alive, Luv Poly"

Morning Everyone,

Poly Styrene talks to John Robb, the first time we see Poly giving a personal insight into her highly anticipated album with some behind the scenes footage from the album campaign press shoot.

Watch the video here http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UGfhPSFfyuY&feature=youtu.be
and let us know what you think over here! http://www.facebook.com/polystyrenemusic?sk=wall

Poly Styrene’s most in depth interview as yet with The Quietus, discusses her spirituality, fighting against being a sex symbol and why she’s glad she’s not writing the album now.

Read it here at The Quietus: http://thequietus.com/articles/05900-poly-styrene-interview-generation-indigo

Hope you are all having a positive day.

Thanks,
Poly Styrene Team.x
