Like many fans of the late Poly Styrene stumbling across any unseen interviews, demos or footage of the singer of the ground breaking punk band X-Ray Spex would be like finding the holy grail. So imagine my surprise when I found that a 1979 BBC documentary about Poly Styrene has recently floated onto the internet.
The 40 minute documentary, Who is Poly Styrene, is a must see for any Poly and X-Ray Spex fans. The cameras follow Poly at the height of her fame where she discusses dealing with fame, how she writes her songs and how she started the band. I especially love hearing her reading out her lyrics like poetry while the camera takes in a view of seventies London.
Definitely a must see!
