Real Gone Music is proud to present Germfree Adolescents, one of thesignature albums of the early (1978) British punk movement, in the format(vinyl!) it belongs and in a color mix (yellow with blue-green splatter!) itdemands.
The one and only LP release from X Ray Spex and its irrepressible frontwoman Poly Styrene has been deemed by everybody from Greil Marcus to Robert Christgau to Spin to Mojo as one of the greatest punk albums ever made, andfor this reissue, we’ve done it right; besides the colored vinyl, we’ve reproduced the inner lyric sheet, where you can read Poly’s brilliant observations about theplastic, corporate nature of modern society.
All of which she sings in a passionate yowl all her own (with Lora Logic amongothers backing on saxophone); this is not only one of the most penetratinglyobservant punk records, it’s also one of the most passionate, and, surprisinglyenough, catchy. Check out “The Day the World Turned Day-Glo” and “GermFree Adolescents” if it’s hooks you’re after; if it’s righteous anger and a noisyracket you’re seeking, every track will do ya.
